Our Vision

When people sing together, magic happens -- forming community, bridging differences, awakening creativity and giving each of us the courage to bring our voice more fully into the world.

What's Happening

Our Programs

Singing NGOs

We energize and bring joy to those served by NGOs through regular group singing classes and choirs. Our strategy is to customize singing classes and curriculum and to train Singing Guides within our partner organizations so they can make singing an integral part of their programs.

English Through Singing

Singing is a fun and effective way to learn English because it engages students in the music and the enjoyment of singing, and they forget they are learning English too. We offer English Through Singing classes in many schools.

Singing Guide Training

We have a big vision, the possibility that Cambodia is a country alive with singing, from the villages to the cities, from the classrooms to the factories. Our Singing Guides are the inspiring people who are making that vision real every day. We train and support those who love singing to facilitate group singing.

Community Choirs

The invitation is simple. Come sing with us! People from all backgrounds, nationalities and singing abilities come to our open Community Choirs and sing Khmer songs and songs from around the world. It’s a great way to bring some energy and community into your life. No experience necessary!

Special Programs

We look for partners and opportunities to use singing in creative ways that bring our vision alive. Check out the Hidden Voices project we were honored to participate in with our partner Liger School. WATCH VIDEO

About Us

Cambodia Sings! is a non-profit organization dedicated to rekindling the joy of singing for all Cambodians.


We are igniting the joy of group singing in Cambodia. Singing together creates a safe opportunity to express yourself, bridge differences and build creative confidence. With our evolving team of local and visiting singing guides, we partner with schools and NGOs to add group singing into their work with young people. For many of our participants, singing has become a rare opportunity to realize that their voice is valued and important.

The singing culture of Cambodia suffered a tragic setback during the Khmer Rouge era. Famous singers were killed and people who raised their voices in any way risked their lives. This national silencing left a legacy of fear of speaking and singing up. With rare exceptions, singing is still not taught in the schools.

But the culture and diverse artistic richness in Cambodia are rising again.

We’re committed to a future where singing together is part of every Cambodian child’s experience of growing up and finding their place, their voice in the world. We see a future where Cambodia is known for the richness of its singing culture.
