Pan Ron was a Cambodian singer and songwriter who was at the height of popularity in the 1960s and early 1970s. She had some success in the early 60s after her hit "Pka Kabass" in 1963, but her career really took off when she began recording with Sinn Sisamouth in 1966.
In the late 1960s, Pan recorded many solo hits and duets with Sinn Sisamouth. Ros Serey Sothear's debut in 1967 had little effect on Pan's career and perhaps even broadened Pan Ron's popularity as the second leading lady of music.
As a successful singer in the 1970s, aside from singing film songs, Pan had a number of hits in the 1970s including "Kanha 80 Kilometer"featured in Voy Ho's 4th album in 1972, and "Komlos Jreus Jap." Pan Ron is considerably one of the most versatile singers in the history of music having a record consisting of traditional, rock, twist, cha cha cha, agogo, mambo, madizon, jazz, and folk songs, leaving a legacy of Cambodian 60s and 70s music behind. While Pan Ron was the second lady of Khmer music during the 60s and 70s, little is known about her life. What is known of her comes from hundreds of songs, many of which she both wrote and performed.
Not much is known about Ron's personal life, as she was noted to keep as much of her private life out of the public's eye. Her younger sister Pan Rom, said her sister survived up until the Vietnamese invasions when the Khmer Rouge launched their final series of mass executions.
