The life of Peruvian exotica pioneer Yma Sumac is the stuff of legend. Raised high in the Andes near the Ecuadorian border, Sumac developed an incredible five-octave range by imitating local birds and after marrying the composer and bandleader Moises Vivanco, began an incredible career that would see her feted across the globe. Released in 1954, fifth studio album 'Mambo!' is one of the greatest of her entire career, the smooth diction of her sung lyrics broken up by operatic trills and wordless scat vocals the likes of which has never been equalled. A must-have for Yma Sumac devotees and all fans of exotica - best played loud!
Comes on clear vinyl.
