The Sovann Machha dance is a short scene from the Cambodian Classical ballet. Here at Koulen Restaurant, we have professionally trained dancers that perform The Sovann Machha Dance nightly at our restaurant in Siem Reap.
It comes from the Cambodia Reamke (Ramyana), the episode of King Ram's Mobilising forces that set up a rock dam for combat in liberating Neang Sit who had been captured by Rahwana, the Giant's king of Laingka.
This bridge is then totally devastated by Fish Frees who was commanded by Sovann Machha, the Golden Fish. After realising this, the White Monkey Commander in Chief of the Monkey Forces used his clairovyance to pay course to Sovann Machha, who eventually fell in love with him.
Again, like most traditional Khmer performances, this is a truly colourful performance. It tells a love story and during this dance you will witness one of the original love stories in Cambodia! This amazing dance is performed by our in-house performers who all have many years of experience, bringing you one of the finest shows in Siem Reap.
Koulen Restaurant is located on Sivatha Street in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Oppostite Lucky Mall, near to National Road Number 6.
