Khmer Rouge Survivors
They Will Kill You if You Cry (Glitterbeat)


Led by Amnesty International activist Arn Chorn Pond, this features survivors of Pol Pot’s murderous crusade against Cambodia’s artists and intellectuals, and was released to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the genocide. Its unique mix of South-East Asian blues, poignant narrative and arresting vocals packs a powerful emotional punch and was reviewed in #121.
