The FCC will host a one-day golf challenge in Phnom Penh at the Cambodia Golf and Country Club. The challenge is a Texas scramble format with teams of two. The first event took place in December, while the second challenge was in February. "The last one we had 44 players," said Ben Jancloes, FCC Operations Director. "So we decided to do one every two months." For more information or to register for either golf event, contact Leng Chantha at 093 222 745 or email@example.com
Founded in 2010 by violinist Matthias Wagner, a German "with 6% Italian blood", the orchestra's mainstay is traditional folk music, some of which dates back more than 800 years. Drawing on musicians from the UK, New Zealand, Germany, Japan, Russia, Australian, Italy, Sweden and France, it presents world music with genuinely global credentials. These wandering entertainers -- on guitar, bass, violins, cello, mandolin, balalaika, flute, clarinet, trombone, accordion, percussion and drums -- conjure up a rousing chorus of high-energy Eastern-European, Arabian, Jewish and American songs that can breathe life into the most jaded of souls. Show starts at 8:30 p.m. No cover. See An Orchestra of Hippies.
Cambojam, the Siem Reap-based six-piece known for its acoustic sophistication, is on the road and exploring new, electrified styles. Originally an all-acoustic act, the band began experimenting with electrified sounds in December, and the six-piece ensemble plans to showcase the best of both styles Aug 7 when the group plays The FCC Phnom Penh. The band's selection of music tends mostly toward straight ahead rock 'n' roll, but reggae, pop and Latin, as well as harder-edged heavy metal also make regular appearances in the group's set list.
With his iPod and a library of Latin jazz, DJ Jimmy Campbell brings the spirits of 1950s Havana to The FCC Phnom Penh, where salsa partners will turn The FCC's upstairs dining room into a dance floor. Dancing starts on Saturday 21st Jan at 8:30 p.m. until late, and the more experienced dancers are always happy to dip and twirl with new followers of the craze. No cover.
