“The new song from PMO is an infectious, get-off-your-feet dance anthem that aims to be a favorite at salsa clubs around the world.” ~Salsa by the Bay
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 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.
Steffen, Armando and I did a radio interview about the PMO Dance and video with Luis Medina on KPFA last week. You can listen to the archive here (it will be available until March 7).
