More About This Experience

Used in all the big occasions in Cambodia, these quintessential drums are a staple in Cambodians' lives. While similar in style to the samba drums of South America and the African drums, it retains a very special SouthEast Asian flavour to it. Choose from a variety of drums to learn! From the pair of big war-drum sounding set to the long and slender standing drum and also the sling drums, you have a tough choice! Each one of them makes a different sound and are used for different occasions. Try it all and see which you like most!

Additional Information:

  • Don't worry, just show up and we'll have a lot of fun! :)
  • Be at the pick up location at the tour start time

We took a drumming class organised by the folks of Backstreet Academy - lots of fun, indeed. Mr Hong started it by saying: "I am not a musician". But what a drummer he is! It is good to experience that drumming is not a piece of cake! We learned some stuff, good to see the backstreets, too - and it ... Read more
