Dengue Fever

Season 1 Episode 16 | 32m 55s | Video has closed captioning.

From Los Angeles, Dengue Fever creates psychedelic surf-rock overlaid with traditional Cambodian melodies that Paste Magazine calls, "the maturing, polyglot sounds of America's urban future." Cambodian Chhom Nimol fronts the band and sings mostly in her native language. She's backed by a hurricane ensemble that includes guitar, farfisa (a small, Italian-made organ), bass, drums, and saxophone.
