Singapore's first nominee at the Grammy awards, Arun Shenoy, is hopeful that he can bring home a trophy, despite the odds.

His debut fusion-flamenco album Rumbadoodle is in the running for the Best Pop Instrumental Album accolade at the ceremony in Los Angeles on Feb 10.

"I am up against legends, people who have been nominated for Grammys multiple times, so to win would be an incredible feat.

"But you never know, at the end of the day, it's how the industry perceives your work."
