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.
