Cambodian-American Laura Mam Wins Culture Award

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Singer Laura Mam wins culture award
22 March 2018
Cambodian-American singer and songwriter Laura Mam has been awarded this year’s Arts and Culture prize from the Women of the Future Awards South East Asia. On top of writing and performing an array of hit songs, Mam is the founder of Baramey Production – an artist management and music production company with the goal of supporting original music in Cambodia.

One of six shortlisted candidates in the competition, Mam’s vision for Cambodia’s music industry inspired the judges to select her in the culture category.

“Laura has displayed a systematic approach to building her career, having identified the need for Cambodian original music. She built her own fame, and used that as a platform to drive other artists and music as an industry in Cambodia,” said judges Torie Henderson and Anne Abraham.
"To her, winning success is all about Cambodia’s pride and not about herself.”

In a message to The Post Wednesday, Mam said she dedicated the award to any Cambodians “with a dream for a better future” – while adding that she wanted to “share” the honour with singer Kak Channthy, who passed away early on Tuesday in a traffic accident.
