Luna Catches Dengue Fever - and it Rocks!
We first added Zak Holtzman and Senon Williams of Dengue Fever to our gallery of artists in 2008! (We can't believe it was that long ago.) Here's a 2013 update from this hotter-than-ever band:
In the summer of 2012, TOMS invited DENGUE FEVER to participate in their One for One giving trip to Cambodia. TOMS choice to invite DENGUE FEVER was a perfect match for this gifting mission because of singer Chhom Nimol’s incredible story of growing up in refugee camps, destined to immigrate to the United States and front a band of Americans, who meld the sounds of Cambodian Psych, Surf, Afro Beat and Garage Rock into a bopping Odyssey. The band quickly accepted the offer, and Nimol, Zac, and Paul packed their bags for a very emotional ten days, journeying to Siem Reap, Battambang, and Phnom Penh to support TOMS and their giving partners in Cambodia, Cambodian Children’s Fund and Seva Foundation.
DENGUE FEVER has worked with a number of organizations in Cambodia over the years. The music of Cambodia has not been the only inspiration to the band; the people and warmth and charm of this country have also inspired DF to give back in many ways over the years, raising money previously for Cambodian Children’s Fund, Green Gecko Foundation, Cambodian Living Arts, and others. Along with the other cast members, Nimol, Zac, and Paul were able to help TOMS and CCF distribute shoes to those in need, and visit with patients receiving free eye health care, including exams and surgeries, courtesy of Seva Foundation and TOMS One for One eyewear program.
PLUS, they're offering an exclusive free download of one of their songs, Tiger Phone Card, to TOMS fans! Download it here: http://bit.ly/V746r1
