Still from Yere Faga: A woman stands behind flames and smoke at night.

Dengue Fever - Seeing Hands

The roots of the band began in the late 1990s with keyboardist Ethan Holtzman's six-month trek through Southeast Asia. Returning to Los Angeles with a suitcase crammed full of Cambodian cassette tapes, Holtzman and his brother Zac, who had discovered the same music while working at a record store in San Francisco, reunited. The brothers soon bonded over their love of vintage Cambodian rock and in 2002 founded the band with three other members. Shortly thereafter the members were on hot pursuit for the ideal Cambodian chanteuse to complete their outfit. Nimol, who they found working at a Cambodian nightclub in Long Beach, CA, joined the band when she realized the band shared a genuine passion for the music and culture of her homeland.

In this video, the band is driving through the desert in a van playing their instruments.
