Most young people may not know much about the P-sand Music band. But if we mentioned I’m In Love With Your Mom and Khmer Loy9, they would realise that celebrities that they know did perform these songs. 

Sopheak, the group’s leader, says his main purpose was to compose original music with talented young musicians for the Cambodian audience.

The band was founded in 2012 with four members: a guitarist, a drummer, a pianist and a singer.

P-sand Music is unique in Cambodia. All its members are expert musicians with a strong musical background.

Sand is the band’s singer and songwriter. He has a knack for music and sings in four languages: Khmer, Thai, Lao and English.

“So far, he has composed eight songs for the band,” Pisan says. “These songs are going to be aired very soon. Many people might say that composing music is difficult. It isn’t for him; his talent is incomparable.”

Sand says: “To compose a good song, we need a fair amount of knowledge about music. When I am inspired, I can compose a song in two days. Then I submit it to the band for the approval and together we work on it until we achieve the best result.”  

Even though P-sand Music is new on the scene, the band’s popularity in Cambodia is increasing every day.

P-sand aims to tour the country one day and to stage concerts for thousands of fans.
