Biography

Pan Ron (ប៉ែន រ៉ន) was a Cambodian singer and songwriter who was at the height of popularity in the 1960s and early 1970s. She had some success in the early 60s, but her career really took off when she began recording with Sinn Sisamouth in 1966. After that, she had many hits, sometimes singing alone, but often paired with Sisamouth, Ros Sereysothea, or some of the other stars of the era. She was one of two most famous Cambodian female singers of the time; the other was Ros Serey Sothear. While Pan Ron was the second lady of Khmer music during the 60s and 70s, little is known about her life. What we know of her comes from hundreds of songs, many of which she both wrote and performed. She is not known to have survived the Khmer Rouge years.

    Hello, I am trying to identify a khmer song I have completely fallen in love with, but don't know the name of. I heard it on the night of Chinese New Year on an island in Cambodia. It was a song you could dance to (in fact, everybody did), and I didn't understand the lyrics, but it seemed like a very happy song. I'm 90% sure that it was a duet with both a male and a female singer. This particular song seemed like one of the most popular songs that evening, it was played two or three times. Do you have any idea what song this might be? Thanks in advance for any tips or other help :)
