The culminating event commemorating Cambodian New Year: Year of the Rabbit. The auspicious morning will begin with Buddhist monks blessing and chanting, followed by traditional music, food, and dance inspired by the youth of the Children of Basaac, led by Master Artist Ieng Sithul and Artist-In-Residence Kimhan Meas from the Royal University of Fine Arts. These visiting artists grew up in a slum in Phnom Penh. For them, the arts and preservation of culture have transformed their lives opening opportunities for education, employment and travel. The tour will mark the group’s debut American performance, following their international successes in Japan, Australia and Great Britain.

Presented by: Angkor Dance Troupe, Cambodian Living Arts, Cambodian Mutual Assistance Association, Coalition for a Better Acre, Light of Cambodian Children, Lowell Alliance for Families and Neighborhoods, and Lowell National Historical Park.
