The Blackbird And The Monkey And Khmer Music

This is a Cambodian short story that is inspired for all people before we want to give any advice to someone, we should think of his or her character and behavior; otherwise we may lose our honest advice. And in turn, we may lose our asset due to that immoral man or woman. In real society, it may be happened in this matter with someone that sometimes forget her or his ability to advise somebody, but they try to perform themselves to advise someone until they lose something as assets and other belongings. Now, look! Cambodia short story and then reflect yourself according to the story.

There were two blackbirds: male and female who set their nest on the tree. Meanwhile, it was raising; a homeless monkey who was stricken with cold came to stay under the blackbird’s tree. When the blackbirds saw him terribly shivering, one counseled him “Oh! Brother Monkey, you have two hand and two legs as a man does. Why don’t you build a home for your dwelling?”

The monkey said “I have two hands and two legs as a man does. Thus I am nest-less animal. The truth is I cannot do it.” The blackbird said again “You do not need knowledge to build your nest. You see the birds only one beak and they can build the nest which they need for their protection from the cold and the rain. You had better think it over. Am I right or not All the animals in the world have their own dwelling to protect their babies and their mate mate from suffering. If you cannot build a good nest, you just only put branches one on another and you cover it with leaves for your own nest for a while. You do not depend on another’s dwelling or on branch or on a tree. It is very difficult for your mate and your young ones. Monkey, you have two hands and two legs, I think you can do it. Please do it do not wait for your knowledge to help you. All the animals have only strength and will work their own way. They never work like the human beings. You see even the worm, the locust and termite which are very small, but they have their own habitations. And you why can’t you do it? Other animals have no more knowledge thank you, but they are able to build habitations of their own. You said that you cannot do it, because you do not want to do it, and you are a lazy animal.”

When monkey heard the blackbird criticize him, he became angry because he was ashamed before blackbirds, then he swung straight to the blackbirds nest and dropped it down. Thus, do not give counsel those do not want to listen. Source: Dik Keam

Regarding demographics in the analytics of my YouTube channel, both Khmer man and woman who are aging from 18 to 60 years old still have really known that these songs are beautiful in comparison with today’s songs. From the demographics of my channel, the top 1 age who still loves Khmer Oldie Songs is male of 18 and 24 (i.e. 35%). The top 2 age is male from 25 to 34 (i.e. 20%), and the top 3 age is male from 45 to 54 (i.e. 17%). However, unfortunately, top 1 age of the female is just only 5.8 % with the range of 18 and 24 compared to the male top 1 age of male. The other ages of female are lower than the male compared to the top 2 and top 3 age of male. Note the songs are interested from Cambodia domestic and more particularly from Khmer in California in United States of America to other Khmer living around the world.

Far beyond, all Khmer people both in domestic and overseas still acknowledged that the voice of all Khmer singers has been popular so far. In fact, Khmer citizen in domestic and oversea more particularly Khmer in United States of America still listen to those oldie songs. They are still adhered to these voices although the voices were produced quite long time; i.e. soft and charming. The voices are truly no any voice comparable with the voice from the past to the present time. So, we do hope that these oldie songs will have been remained and kept as following from one to another generation.
