Sound Tracks | Watch Dengue Fever Perform "Uku" | PBS

Duration: 06:59
Program: Sound Tracks: Music Without Borders (Pilot)

"Uku" expresses an immigrant's longing for a world left behind. It casts a spell of nostalgia and regret. "The windy season makes me think of my village," sings Chhom Nimol. "I think of the old people, young people, aunts and uncles. We used to run and play, hide and seek. But now we are far apart. Far apart."
