iTunes Review

“A Cambodian singer’s homecoming, an American’ band’s odyssey.” The documentary film, “Sleepwalking Through the Mekong,” follows L.A. indie-pop band Dengue Fever and their Cambodian singer Chhom Nimol, as they return to her homeland to pay homage to a musical genre almost completely effaced by the brutal Khmer Rouge regime in the ‘70s. The culture of ‘60s Cambodian pop was revisited by Nimol and her American bandmates on their 2005 journey, with the band performing and recording with surviving master musicians. The soundtrack is a colorful aural document of that journey, and beyond the exotic strains of Dengue Fever, fans and newcomers can also get a taste of true, classic Cambodian pop music with tracks by Sinn Sisamouth & Ros Serey Sothea, and Meas Smaoun, along with tracks of the band playing with master musicians Tep Mary and Kong Nai. Making music inspired not only by the beguiling sounds of Cambodian pop, but also by American psychedelia and surf music, Bollywood, and Ethopian jazz, Dengue Fever may be the Most (Adored) Multi-Culti Pop Band in America.

kinda cool >.<

The music is kinda cool.....it's good for those days when you have nothing to do but listen to you're i pod and you're board and u set it to shuffle and oone of these songs comes on. Its a good kind of different. You end up liking these kinds after you listen to them for a while! GETB! Good Enough To Buy!

Awesome!!

It's always great to hear cambodian music. Taking me back to my roots..

Holiday in Cambodia...

Okay so they're from California, but the singer lends Khmer cred. The sound is straight out of the late 1960s/ early '70s and has more in common with more familiar varieties of pop/funk/rock than the name might imply. If you must understand (lyrically) what you are listening to, this will not be for you; however, if you have an eclectic ear Dengue Fever is pretty hip. I would put it up there with the best of Manu Chao and the World Psychadelic Classics collections which are similarly hard to peg as anything other than pop/ fusion/ world music. Fans of RZA's more recent work on soundtracks (Afro Samurai series/ film, Kill Bill 1&2) should aslo tune in. It's funky, its danceable, buy it!
