Skyline Sessions

Live In Studio: Dengue Fever

One of the most original bands in rock music performs in the Geary Studio.

Based in Los Angeles, Dengue Fever blends surf rock, psychedelic rock, vintage Cambodian pop, and Khmer folk music into an exotic, groove-heavy sound buoyed by lead singer Chhom Nimol’s unmistakeable voice. While on tour, Dengue Fever visited Houston Public Media’s Geary Studio to record a stripped-down version of “Uku,” one of the band’s most indelible songs.
