The flamboyant Peruvian duo draw parallels between new Latinx club music, South African gqom and their bombastic digital cumbia sound.

The highly contagious duo of Rafael Periera and RBMA alum Felipe Salmon, AKA Dengue Dengue Dengue, have brought a new level of tropical madness to the cumbia world; they fuse modern production savvy with traditional sounds to create a compelling modern interpretation. Hailing from the Peruvian capital of Lima, they are known for their humorous visuals, psychedelic masks and raw dance wobble. Dengue Dengue Dengue are instantly recognizable, and they’ve built up a fanbase through their releases on the Portuguese label Enchufada (the most recent being 2018’s Son de los Diablos), continuing to spread their sound across a diverse Latin underground.
