The Mekong Pirates are back!

After a short yet active few months of absence, the Pirates are back on stage in Phnom Penh.
They will play on October 16th, right where they belong: at the Chinese House
Since the 13 members of the group felt a little bit lonely, Samret, a Khmer musician will come and give them a hand
Caution: the concert will start at 8 pm. A happy hour cocktail (Pirates punch at $1) will surely convince you

What a night !

It seems that performing at the Chinese House turns out well for the Mekong Pirates.
We saw the musicians play and perspire, the audience dance and sing, the stage collapse and the public carry the pirates... on their back !
Thank you for this hysterical evening. And a special thank to Paul for his warm welcome in his Chinese house.

Farewell to Marion and Dom !

Thanks to all of you who came to Tamarind to listen to Marion, surrounded by her agitated Pirates one last time, a few hours only before she left the Kingdom of Cambodia, heading towards new exciting adventures.
Good luck to Dom as well in his journey.
So long !

Almost professional

The question was whether MP were the most professional group in town: 50% responded YES... while the other half is still in doubt.
Well, we will try to convince you (or not) during our next concerts.
In the meantime, as it seems many of you actually believe what's written in Asia Life, here's an abstract of their reports after the FCC concert :
" The FCC rooftop was teeming with revellers from all walks of life. It seems the entire city had come out to see phnom Penh's favourite eclectic 15 musicians band. The energy level was on overload as dancers crowded to the front and vraned their necks to catch a glimp of the band's pirate costumes".
