Pacific Mambo Orchestra Releases New Single and Video - Pacific Mambo Dance

Grammy Award Winning Pacific Mambo Orchestra Releases New Single and Video Pacific Mambo Dance Worldwide on March 3rd, 2015

Mambo’s Gonna Rock Your World! Move Over Macarena...

This is Pacific Mambo Orchestra’s first international video and single release since the San Francisco Bay Area sensation nabbed the 2013 Grammy Award® for Best Tropical Latin Album.
 
Pacific Mambo Dance is an infectious, get-off-your-feet group dance anthem that’s destined to become a new club classic and will be available digitally worldwide on March 3rd, 2015.
 
The video is a lush Latin dream that opens with joyously teasing instrumentals (among them, co-leaders Christian Tumalan on piano and Steffen Kuehn on trumpet), then slides into hypnotic lyrics from vocalists Armando Cordoba and Alexa W. Morales (channeling a retro crooner during some breakout swing), and is peppered throughout with sultry Latin dance moves. While all this is going on, vibrant backdrops evoke the lush colors of the tropics -- with a little Grammy-inspired gold thrown in for good measure. The single and video is an audio and visual fiesta for salsa dancers and lovers alike.
 
The PMO is directed by Mexican-born pianist Christian Tumalan and German-born trumpeter Steffen Kuehn, each one a highly skilled and experienced artist in their own right.
 
The band's instrumentation consists of four Trumpets, four Trombones, five Saxophones, Piano, Bass, Timbales, Congas, Bongos and two lead singers, the lovely Ms. Alexa W. Morales and Armando Cordoba. Powered by a sensational percussion section featuring Venezuelan Timbalero Omar Ledezma Jr., Mexican Conguero Javier Cabanillas and Peruvian Bongo expert Braulio Barrera, the band also showcases savvy improvisers forged in the region’s most celebrated Latin bands.
