I like Khmer rhythm Madison and I think every Cambodian does. I wanted to write something about this popular dance but never get enough chance to make it done.
Thank to Loy9 to bring such attention to the country as well as to the world. I asked Sovanna for some photos from the events.
Special thank to him for the photos!
It was raining when the event took place but nobody went home. They all wanted to dance and celebrate this special event.
It is easy to dance by following others. But if you ask me to dance alone I really don’t know how to dance. Khmer rhythm Madison is a dance original came from America then brought to Cambodia in 60s.
Most of the people in US or Europe forget this dance already but people in Cambodia still love rhythm Madison. In any wedding party, they must play Madison. Not just one time but many times.
Here is the short video that explain a bit the history of Madison with the background music of first Madison song sang by Pan Ron:
