Extreme Khmer

Now that I have the ability to post video to this page, I’ll be able to more efficiently plug the vital work of Khmer teacher extraordinaire Frank Smith.

Lokkru Frank teaches and runs the Khmer program every Summer at SEASSI (Southeast Asian Summer Studies Institute) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He wrote the textbooks that many if not most of the current younger generation of Khmer students (and tons of Khmer heritage students!) used. He also has a video podcast, called “Extreme Khmer,” which he publishes to his own website, and also to youtube.

I can’t grab video straight from his site, and the most recent video – a presentation by Farina So from DC-CAM about Cham in Cambodia – is not yet up on youtube.

So, for now, here’s clip one of the best recorded performance of the Preah Ko Preah Keo story I’ve ever seen, recorded by Lokkru (teacher) Frank Smith.
