The roots of Dengue Fever began in the late 1990s with a six-month trek through Southeast Asia. Returning to L.A. with a suitcase crammed full of Cambodian cassette tapes, keyboardist Ethan Holtzman reunited with his brother Zac, who had discovered the same music while working at a record store in San Francisco. Bonded over their love of vintage Cambodian rock, the brothers founded Dengue Fever in 2002 with saxophonist David Ralicke (Beck/Brazzaville), drummer Paul Dreux Smith, and bassist Senon Williams (Radar Brothers). Their search for the ideal chanteuse to complete their outfit led them to a Cambodian nightclub in Long Beach, CA, where after a short period of musical courtship, Chhom Nimol joined the band when she realized the guys shared a genuine passion for the music and culture of her homeland.
