The Gum-Lacquer Pounding Dance is a representation of an ancient tradition of black teeth. The Khmer women, particularly the older ones, chew betel nuts and leaves to give their teeth a shiny black look. This tradition is still practiced in some regions on Cambodia, especially during wedding ceremonies.
The Gum-Lacquer Pounding Dance is performed to carry on the ancient tradition of chewing betel nuts at weddings and other ceremonies.
Here at Koulen Restaurant, we have professionally trained dancers that perform The Gum Lacquer Pounding Dance nightly at our restaurant in Siem Reap.
