DENGUE FEVER’s musical sensibility has always featured the members’ diverse and progressive approach to songwriting and arrangement. Their eponymous debut (Web of Mimicry) predominantly featured covers of Cambodian classics, a poignant and rocking tribute to the singers and songwriters who perished under the Khmer Rouge. The album also featured “Ethanopium,” an instrumental cover of a song by Ethio-jazz legend, Mulatu Astatke, used in Jim Jarmusch’s film, Broken Flowers.
DENGUE FEVER’s uniquely accessible multicultural sound has allowed them to transcend physical borders as easily as musical ones. Beyond their popularity in the United States and Cambodia, the band has toured to hungry audiences all over Europe, as well as Turkey, Vietnam, Brazil, Mexico, Laos, and New Zealand. In April, 2013, the band will open the Season of Cambodia festival, a month-long curation of classic and contemporary Khmer art in New York City.
Keep your eye on the news: DENGUE FEVER is spreading.
