Bad Neighbour Latin rock, March 22 at the FCC Phnom Penh, 9 p.m.
Lead by Argentinean guitarist Claudio Duek on vocals, Saigon-based Latin rock band Bad Neighbour are veterans of Vietnam’s vibrant live music scene. Bad Neighbour is a staple at hotspots such as Saigon Saigon, the Underground, Manna, Vasco’s and the Caravelle.
“We used to play rock,” Duek says. “By my South American origin pushed me slowly back to Latin Rock.”
In addition to Duek’s vocals, Bad Neighbour brings a diverse lineup of global talent; there’s a rapper from Ghana, a vocalist from Spain, a drummer from the U.K. and four musicians from Vietnam.
“We have our own versions [of] different incredible groups like Carlos Vives from Columbia, Mana from Mexico, Santana, Juanes, Shakira,” says Duek of the band’s music. “We play some Latin classic songs, too, arranged to rock. No one song is the original version 100 percent.”
The show starts at 9 p.m. at the FCC Phnom Penh on Sisowath Quay.
