Great article! It takes both actions and words to make a difference and praCh has definitely mastered the two. The Cambodian history has been marred with a storm of pain and suffering... but yet still the heart of the people shines through the thickest of clouds. great job praCh and thank you Press Telegram for helping to inspire a people in desperate need of hope.

PraCh, is an amazing human being, and what he does to promote awareness is inspiring! He has definitely started a movement, and I support his endeavors and music, his expressions, whole heartedly 100%. This is a brilliant article!!

This is a great article but it only highlights a portion of PraCh' success as a musician, artist, and activist. I am, however, glad that it captures the most defining aspect of PraCh's character, COURAGE...courage to speak and give a voice to those who are censored and afraid, courage to stand up against adversity, and courage to be a "leader of resistance."
I feel honored to be a featured artist on his new album, "Dalama", not only because it associates me to an amazing rapper/artist, but to be part of a movement that believes in "freedom of expression" even at the expense of safety!
I wish you the best of luck PraCh! Continue paving the way...
