Cambodia-inspired rock band Dengue Fever is on tour in support of its new album, Cannibal Courtship. In this Live Friday concert, the group will perform at World Cafe Live at the Queen, XPN's brand new music venue in Wilmington, Del.

Brothers Zac and Ethan Holzman, both loves of vintage Cambodian pop music, formed Dengue Fever in 2001 after a chance meeting with Ch'hom Nimol, an esteemed Cambodian singer who stems from a family of wedding singers and who moved to Long Beach from Cambodia in 2000. Specializing in Khmer Rock (a mix of Cambodian Khmer style and psychedelic pop-rock), Dengue Fever started out as a Camboidan pop cover band. But as the group grew into a dynamic six-piece band featuring saxophone, bass, drums, guitar, farfisa and vocals, it developed into an intriguing hybrid of eastern and western styles.

The band performed songs from its new album, Cannibal Courtship, during this Live Friday show. Listen in.
