Cambodian singer/songwriter, Sapoun Midada, 29, has been in the music industry for only a short time, but he has become a megastar almost overnight by singing and performing his self-written songs, a majority of which have become instant hits.
Midada graduated in French literature and music. He was a police officer and a journalist before entering the music industry. His meteoric rise is largely attributed to his songwriting talent and unique voice, which have made him one of the best-known musical stars in Cambodia today.
His song Dear Father, Dear Mother (Pouk Euy, Mey Euy) is featured in the film's opening, a center montage, and the credits.
Dear Father, Dear Mother (Pouk Euy, Mey Euy)
In the deep silence of the night,
The city is pretty and clean,
With Father, I used to listen to the music of the village.
Dear Father, Dear Mother,
“Pouk Euy, Mey Euy” (Dear Father, Dear Mother)
