    Isn’t a wedding a happy time? Why are the khmer wedding songs so depressing?

    I don’t really like plankah. That’s why I refused to have those people performed at my wedding. I think it’s pretty dumb!

    I don’t think there is any sexual stuff in khmer wedding songs. I think you’re talking about ayay (something like that). This is when male and female respond to each other while singing.

    sra_amPhalla..i think the songs are depressing cos for generations Khmer people have been forced into arranged marriages by parents and there children don’t wanna marry those people so sad songs were made up to express there feelings??
    Just look at plang-gar karaoke…the guy or gurl sings about how there boy/gurl friend is forced to marry someone esle and has left them for that person. The words in the song are hard to understand unless you have studied Khmer English..i’m fluent in khmer speaking but sometimes find it hard to understand the meaning of those songs. The language they have used in the songs are ‘king language’ so the meanings are very deep and hard to understand. Mostly the older generations know. What do you think?

    I totally agree…the ones I hear usually involves some guy declaring his undying love for some girl..which will never happen cause the parents don’t agree…most of the time w/ someone all sad. But then again there are the happens ones too…we just don’t hear them as much.

    those ones are depressing :*(

    it’s usually the poor guy that loses the girl to a rich guy.
