“WOMP” (Wat Opot Music Program) is music program for an orphanage in Kampong Speu Province. The video is a short introduction to the place, the kids and the first day the program was launched. The program continues to build…with musical instruments increasing and the launch of a “Visiting Musician” program. To date the Cambodia Space Project, Scott Bywater, The Underdogs (an all Cambodian band) and UP2U Mango have performed at Wat Opot. The theme on the logo, written in Khmer means “One Love, One Heart” from a Bob Marley song the kids learned. The future of this program will involve a two day concert and recording of the participating musicians and the kids from Wat Opot.
