World Music Features Carolina Chocolate Drops
When the Carolina Chocolate Drops take the stage, they’re staking out a spot in a lineage that was old when their mothers and fathers were young.

World Music Features Dengue Fever
Critical darlings Dengue Fever, a six-piece L.A. rock band fronted by the honey-tongued Chhom Nimol, mix the flavor of ’60s surf-psychedelia with a revitalized take on Cambodian pop. Celebrating the release of a new album and a documentary about their Cambodian tour, DF are poised to become a breakout success, perhaps refocusing world attention on the Khmer sound.

We assembled a round-table of topnotch musicians—bluesman Otis Taylor, Rhiannon Giddens of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, rock-jazz firebrand Bela Flek, and bluegrass champions Tony Trischka and Abigail Washburn—to talk about their instrument of choice.
