Phnom Penh (FN), April 12 - Long-Chapei will be displayed at Angkor Sangkranta Wednesday afternoon at My Village, which is located north of Bayon temple in Siem Reap province.
The processional of traditional Long Chapei will be headed by Hun Many, chairman of the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia and will be attended by volunteers, working staff, Apsara Authority officials, and the public.
The Chapei is 10 meters long and is the first of its size.
The instrument is a symbol of Cambodia's rich cultural heritage and is used as a means to protect traditional rituals as well as communicate values, knowledge, and access to Khmer history.
The Long Chapei was designated as a part of UNESCO's Intangible Culture Program in 2016 in response to the loss of Chapei masters during the Khmer Rouge.
