Dengue Dengue Dengue borrow their name from the title of an album released in the ‘60s by Argentinian musician Enrique Lynch, mainly inspired by a Cuban rhythm called Dengue. Dengue is also a word used in Felipe Salmón and Rafael Pereira’s hometown of Lima to describe one’s “desire to party”. It would be hard to find a better name for this project created by two Peruvian audiovisual artists, who release their music on the Portuguese label Enchufada. Inspired by cumbia from the ‘60s and ‘70s, the tropical bass duo set out to explore new rhythms from different corners of the globe, merging contemporary and ancestral sounds with an interesting mix of analogue and digital instruments. Psychedelic cumbia, dub, salsa, bass or techno, any style can bubble to the top in their cauldron of different cultures.
