Asia Society Presents! Dengue Fever
…a refreshing blend of Cambodian sounds, surf rock and psych rock. — The Examiner
They're California-based but have taken '60's Cambodian pop as their main source of inspiration and it's done with style. It's spirited, impassioned. — Peter Gabriel

Dengue Fever’s music has been featured on HBO’s hit series True Blood, CBS’ CSI: Las Vegas, Showtime’s Weeds, and in The Hangover Part II. Spin Magazine highlighted the band in their “Breaking Out” section, and profiles have appeared in The New York Times, Mojo, Magnet, Wired, NPR’s Fresh Air, and Radio Australia.
To date, the band has released four critically acclaimed LPs, as well as a compilation of rare Cambodian gems, Electric Cambodia, and the inspiring documentary of its 2005 Cambodia tour, Sleepwalking Through The Mekong. Since their start in 2002, their creative output has led them through a multicultural genre blend of psychedelia, surf rock, afrobeat, and spaghetti western to name a few. Their bold experimentations garnered praise from critics and fans alike.
Registered ticket holders, please enjoy free admission to the Sarofim Gallery now showing Weavers' Stories From Island Southeast Asia, today until the start of the program.
