Mysteries of the Khmer harp
The Khmer harp, which has probably been missing since the 14th c. from Cambodia, fantasize generations of musicians and intellectuals. The ethnomusicologist Patrick Kersalé has been exploring remote areas of Southeast Asia and India for more than 20 years, tracks the footsteps of this legendary instrument to try to unravel the mystery. His dream: to rebuild the Angkorian harp and restore the orchestras of the glorious past of the Khmer Empire.
