ARN CHORN-POND survived the horrors of the Khmer Rouge regime by playing revolutionary songs on the flute. Today, he is an internationally recognized human rights leader and speaker, the recipient of the Reebok Human Rights Award, the Anne Frank Memorial Award, and the Kohl Foundation International Peace Prize. He is also the subject of the Emmy-nominated documentary, The Flute Player. In the 1990s, he returned to Cambodia to work on humanitarian programs. Some 90 percent of Cambodia’s traditional artists had died during the years of the Khmer Rouge and the years of famine that followed. Some had survived but could not revive their art. Arn knew if these few survivors died without passing on their knowledge, his country’s musical heritage could disappear forever. So in 1996, he founded Cambodian Living Arts.’
