Record Collection Week – Day 4: 18th June 2015: Yma Sumac – Tumpa

Language – Spanish?  Or possibly just ‘jazz’…

Translation – Earthquake

Yma Sumac has an incredible voice, and it is lovely to see her actually performing on this video. A totally amazing vocal range (apparently ‘well over five octaves’).  She is truly a one-off…

This album I bought has stickers on it from record shops in Bilbao and Santander.  Did I buy it in either of those places?  I have absolutely no idea!
