KMANG KMANG (K’mayng K’mayng) is the solo project of Cambodian American Composer Barmey Ung.
"Barmey Ung is a new name you need to know. He’s trained in classical guitar, but he has a wide-open musical heart... he’s put together a hell of a band to help him rein things in. Sometimes they soar, sometimes they whisper, sometimes they even scream a little
““INNOVATIVE, ECLECTIC, AND SOLID!.. They are more than world or folk music, and transcend the combination of strings, voice, and drums that make them up.””
““Chicago’s Kmang Kmang sometimes sound like the unanticipated convergence of alt rock and ECM jazz—with a world of other influences distilled into the mix”
"this Chicago "experimental" music collective have come in with the musical gumbo of the day that blows you away at every level. With chops and vibes that a lot of others can't even come close to, Kmang Kmang plays wise beyond their years and opens the depths by keeping simplicity at their core. A real ear opener of a world beat date that takes off from the runway but never touches down again. Hot stuff."
"Anyone with an interest in classical music with a good dose of jazz and instrumental fusion will be swept away with his intoxicating sense of musical style."
"Drifting is an astonishing debut release that will have you smiling from ear to ear... amazing compositions blend everything into a result so cohesive that the disc is very close to completely unique."
"there’s a prog-rock vibe, with knotty tracks like “Lullaby” winding in similar ways to the guitar and violin sprawls of King Crimson... [the tracks] "Glass” and “The World Is My Playground” showcase Ung’s masterful guitar plucking, interwoven with the four-string acrobatics of violinist Brandi Berry."
"Innovative, Eclectic, and Solid!"
