Description:

Vartey Ganiva visits Farm to Table to showcase the acoustic side of her musical personality. Singing in both English and Khmer, Vartey is both a highly talented performer and an emerging figurehead and role model for the new young Cambodian generation. Together with guitarist Sok Vichey, Vartey is working on an ever-growing repertoire of original songs which deal with such themes as womanhood, domestic violence and social problems. Usually found fronting her punk band at festivals and venues around Phnom Penh, this young woman from Kandal Province is defining herself as an artist completely outside of the expectations normally placed on young female Cambodian singers. In this special acoustic Friday session for Farm to Table, she performs her striking original songs alongside modern chart material and classic Cambodian ‘Golden Era’ cuts. Get on board with Vartey… down on The Farm.
