Rumbadoodle is the debut studio album from Arun Shenoy. It was recorded across the world over the period of two years and was released on August 30, 2012.[1] The album was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Instrumental Pop album category in February 2013.

The album consists of 11 songs, which are individually named by a wide range of styles that are integrated into every song. Shenoy contributes all the proceeds from the album to an education fund for underprivileged people in India.[2]

Composition[edit]

The album has a flamenco feel with fusion influences drawn from contemporary pop, rock and jazz.[2] While he himself claims to have more of a rock and roll background, he was fascinated by Flamenco from a young age, which drove him to try something unfamiliar.[3] Shenoy has cited Yanni as a major inspiration for the album.[4]
