Pacific Mambo Orchestra wins Grammy

The Pacific Mambo Orchestra, co-founded by Christian Tumalan, a piano teacher at Woodland School in Portola Valley, won a Grammy Award for Best Tropical Latin Band for its self-titled debut album.

The awards were announced Sunday.

PMO's competition for the Grammy was steep: They were up against past winners such as Carlos Vives and Marc Anthony. "The four other nominees are really heavyweights in the industry," Mr. Tumalan said before the awards were announced.
