Yma Sumac has a very unique voice, I'd heard quite a few of her tracks but didn't own any of her albums until I made the decision my life needed a bit of her music. I'd preferred the sound of her Mambo-type tunes, so decided this would be the one to go for, I was not disappointed. Yma Sumac's vocal style is quite unique, sounding a little like a love-fest in a zoo, recorded by angelic beings from another dimension. I found myself wanting to live in a world where nature made the noises that came out of Yma Sumac's mouth. This is kitsch for sure but it's also absolutely stunning stuff, buy it and see where it takes you.

By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 2 Mar. 2011
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Operatic voice that travels up and down the scales to bring the exotic lands of Latin America, the lost Inca tribes decimated firstly by Spanish and then later by American foreign policies.

This was the first album bringing a new type of musical lexicon to the average Americana as the washes of blue lagoons, silver sands, swaying palm trees and beautiful nymphs splashing in shallow waters caress the music. A mixture of Latin American marimbas, double bass and hollow tom tom drums pound the surf as Yma sways through the fronds to reveal hidden delights. She can soar and dip with the multiple octaves as the brass sounds announce her arrival in non stop 50's cavalcade of whoops and screams of joy. It was the 50's perhaps as it was pictured rather than how it became. The singing is in Spanish and hep catsville.

This is a feel good album with twists of bitter lemon on the rocks, the same type of range as Diamanda whereas she plummets of the cliff, Yma soars with the skylarks.

Yma Sumac may not be well known to a lot of people - that's agreat shame. She has a brilliant and fantastic voice and is worth listening to.
