Feel Good Friday – Yma Sumac

It’s a really short one, but good luck getting this ear-worm erased from your brain pan after listening.

Yma Sumac – Gopher Mambo. Hey, gophers aren’t exactly squirrels, but they’ve got to be related somewhere down the line.

If you want more Yma (and who wouldn’t) there are tons of tunes at her official Web site – Yma Sumac.

Her vocal range was astounding, reaching up to five octaves. Amazing.

And she was one of the original divas too.

Interesting stuff.

  1. Tough old bird of the stage like this are getting harder and harder to find. Today’s divas seem relatively tame by comparison, perhaps a function of having been corporatized.

  2. TOG, glad you enjoyed it. You’re right about the “corporatized” divas of today. I don’t think they could hold a candle to someone like Yma. Thanks for stopping by the blog.
