Miss Sarawan Acoustic Duo : Mealea Lay and Joe Wrigley perform Cambodian ‘Golden Era’ classics and original songs

Exciting things are happening for Miss Sarawan at the moment. She was recently featured in this segment for TV5:

…showing off her singing skills at an acoustic duo in Phnom Penh, while explaining her background living in a Phnom Penh temple and revealing that her nickname in her home province used to be ‘buffalo girl’! The interviewer seemed more interested in discussing the meaning of her original song ‘Alcoholic Husband’ – and the TV5 segment was edited in such a way as to infer that Joe Wrigley is the subject of this song ! !

Miss Sarawan is very proud to have been invited to perform, with her full band, at next week’s ‘Queens Birthday Party’ event at the Intercontinental in Phnom Penh. Every year, the Embassy of the United Kingdom holds a gala reception to welcome Cambodian ministers, dignitaries and business leaders. The prestigious by-invitation-only cocktail reception will take place in the grand ballroom of the Intercon, where honoured guests will be entertained by The Miss Sarawan twins, with Joe Wrigley and a full backing band.
Here is an amateur video clip of The Sarawan Twins performing with Phil Javelle at a recent Cambodian Film Festival gig:
And here are some pictures from previous gala ‘Queen’s Birthday Party’ celebrations at the Intercon:
