RE-PRESSING OF THIS LONG TERM OUT OF STOCK ITEM. Yma Sumac was a phenomenon in the music world during the early 1950s. With an amazing vocal range of four octaves, this attractive, mysterious woman with a voluptuous figure catapulted onto the American music scene with a 10" album "Voice Of Xtabay" that topped the US charts in 1950. Everything surrounding Yma Sumac had an air of mystery about it, she was said to have been born in a tiny village in the Peruvian high Andes and was a descendant of the Inca Kings and her exotic repertoire was said to be based on Inca legends. This is a great way to discover Yma's unusual vocal ability.
