#217 Chinary Ung

Cambodian composer Chinary Ung came to the U.S. to study clarinet and composition but was forced to stay when the Khmer Rouge uprising broke out in his home country killing millions.

Over the years he has helped many family members and friends escape that regime and has documented his struggles in music. He talks to Relevant Tones about his life and music.
