Dengue Dengue Dengue

Good morning.

It’s Friday so we’re listening to something more upbeat. Today we’re listening to Dengue Dengue Dengue, a Peruvian dance music duo. They bill themselves as “a tropical storm of electronic psychedelia directly from Lima.” They program drum machines, synths, and samples in certain traditional musical styles, primarily the Peruvian flavor of cumbia but also mambo and guacharaca, as they told NPR. We’re playing three of their LPs from 2016 to 2020, beginning with the one we’ve had on rotation recently (Fiebre) and then Siete Raíces and Zenit & Nadir.
