Rumbadoodle is the title track of the GRAMMY-nominated full length studio album of Arun Shenoy, exploring a bold new perspective of the gypsy rumba flamenco, combining elements of the traditional art form with a myriad of popular music forms. Recorded almost entirely live across the Globe, this record is an explorative journey, doodling across genre boundaries as we know it today, creating a unique and true masterpiece along the way.
Arun Shenoy commented on the video: "Probably inspired by what I had seen from Pink Floyd's 'Pulse' I would assume to some extent. This component involved working with art director Roshni Mohapatra and the team at animation specialty house, Actuality Films in New York led by creative director Robert Capria. This led to very detailed and intricate artwork representative of each track on the album. The Afro-Cuban influence extends to the main album artwork as well. The 1950s American car on the cover is iconic of Cuba, a country cut off from the outside world after the Cuban Missile Crisis. The illustration plays like a black and white photograph and one splash of symbolic color - blue, the most characteristic of the sky, doors and cars in Havana. And the video also follows along the same vibe." http://www.arunshenoy.com/
