The Smithsonian magazine’s Around the Mall blog has it: Catch Dengue Fever at the Freer on Friday. Jeff Campagna had an email interview with Los Angeles-based band Dengue Fever lead singer Chhom Nimol and the brothers Holtzman.
Chhom [Nimol], Sleepwalking Through The Mekong has been described as a homecoming for you. What kind of emotions did the tour stir up?
Chhom [Nimol]: During that trip I felt nervous, emotional, and happy at the same time. I had the jitters wondering how would the Khmer audience respond to our music. I was happy and emotional to see my family since I’ve been away from Cambodia for quite some time.
