A fixture of the Saigon music scene, Latin rock act Bad Neighbours return to Phnom Penh. "We try to destroy the song and put in reggae, rap, Latin, some house," band founder Claudio Duek told Asia Life recently. "We try to do the exact opposite of cover bands who try to perform as much like the original." Show starts at 9 p.m. Saturday, and 6 p.m. Sunday. No cover.
"Celtic music means fun, lively, diversified music," says Kheltica's founder, Jean-Claude Dhuez. "But it's principally means sharing good time together." That sentence captures the spirit of Kheltica, who came together in 2009 for a St. Patrick's Day gig and, fueled by the show's surprising success, kept on playing. Show starts at 8:30 p.m. No cover.
A six-act play by local French-language comedy troupe Improhok. "There are six strange, funny, delirious scenes" says Jean-Marie Coquard, a teacher at Lycée Descartes in Phnom Penh and one of Improhok's eight members. "Each one occurs in a singular place and makes a story by itself. But they all have the painting in common, and the six scenes make a whole story -- with an astonishing end!" Play begins at 8:30 p.m. No cover.
With his iPod and a library of Latin jazz, DJ Jimmy Campbell brings the spirits of 1950s Havana to The FCC Phnom Penh, where eager couples will turn the restaurant's upstairs dining room into a dance floor. Salsa dancing typically starts about 8:30, and the more experienced dancers are always happy to dip and twirl with new followers of the craze. 8 p.m. No cover.
Warapo is the house band at the famous Caraville Hotel in Saigon. Founded in 1998 in Santa Clara, Cuba, the four-man, two-women Cuban fusion band play radio-friendly Latin rhythms steeped in the Cuban tradition. Warapo won the title "Best Amateur Band" in November 1998 at the 14th Artist College Festival in Holguín, and with their second album, "Tengo Nada," the band garnered four nominations at the 2008 Cuban Disco Awards, Cuba's most prestigious music awards. Show starts at 9 p.m. No cover.
