Thursday, August 4th: Malkit Singh & Dengue Fever

Malkit Singh & Dengue Fever
Damrosch Park Bandshell, Manhattan

An unrivaled global superstar of bhangra and a best-selling artist in the infectious Punjabi pop style, Indian singer Malkit Singh’s impassioned vocals have even reached the ears of the Queen of England (he was knighted as a result).

L.A.’s Dengue Fever, fronted by Cambodia-born singer Chhom Nimol (who has performed for royalty herself), transforms sunny ’60s psychedelia into boundary-crossing Cambodian rock that mines surfy garage-pop and Afro grooves.
