An ancient instrument, over one thousand of years old, is still being played by the only surviving Cambodian Master, Sok Duch. The Kse Diev is known as `’the instrument of the heart`’, because when it is played it is held close to one’s heart.

Board zither by Nyel Che (untitle song) — Bunong — Mondolkiri
Created and made by this blind musician, this board zither is probably unique in the whole Southeast Asian! It incorporates the principles of the tube zither with melodical strings and accompaniment ones. Here, the strings are distributed either side of the board.
Nyel Che is at the same time author, composer, arranger and performer. He died in 2014.
Artists: Song Pru (singing) & Nyel Che (board zither)

Cithare sur planche par Nyel Che — Bunong — Mondolkiri
Création et réalisation de ce musicien non-voyant, cette cithare sur planche était probablement unique dans toute l’Asie du Sud-Est ! Elle reprend toutefois les principes de la cithare tubulaire avec ses cordes mélodiques et d’accompagnement. Ici, les cordes sont réparties de part et d’autre de la planche.
Nyel Che était à la fois auteur, compositeur, arrangeur et interprète. Il est mort en 2014.
Interprètes : Song Pru (chant) & Nyel Che (cithare sur planche)
