Yma Sumac

Got a great CD from the library, A Proper Introduction to Yma Sumac. Always have been a fan of World music, and I seemingly always knew Yma Sumac. Fantastic sounds from the Alternate Reality of the 1950’s. Astounding that she could get away with being such a character yet bring such outlandish and modern challenging music and sounds. She rises above the orchestra stylings of the age, yet the orchestration isn’t schmaltzy or innappropriate, like another dimension briefly overlapped ours.
