By the 1960, all the countries surrounding Cambodia were at war. But Cambodia had managed to avoid getting drawn into the Vietnam War. During that period, the capital, Phnom Penh, had a thriving music scene, with bands playing a mixture of western and Khmer rock. That all ended when the Khmer Rouge regime took over.
