“I think Khmer music is on the right path,” VannDa said. “And for me, I feel that we do not have more time to wait. We must go.”

For as long as he can remember, Vannda Mann has always wanted to sing. Six years ago, he said goodbye to his parents and siblings, hopped in a taxi, and embarked on a journey to become a musician.

“It’s time for me to search for my dream. I am a person who loves music. Since I was young, I have lived with music. I’ve been everywhere with music. It’s an inspiration for me. It’s a path that I chose, a path that I love,” he told VICE.
