Yma Sumac

Recital (Lp + Cd)

Label: Esp-Disk

Format: LP + CD

Genre: Library/Soundtracks

In stock


originally released in 1961. Peruvian singer Yma Sumac glided effortlessly from contralto to coloratura, her voice covering a range of no less than four octaves -- skeptics even suspected studio trickery! Her early repertoire included popular music and jazz pieces, but by this 1961 concert, she was devoting herself to the goal of making known the music of her homeland and neighboring countries. This is the first time ESP-Disk has released this concert on vinyl. To fit it on a single LP, the orchestral tracks that Ms. Sumac does not sing on were omitted from the vinyl, but the CD is included as a bonus insert, so that purchasers of ESPDISK 4029LP can hear the entire concert. Live in Bucharest, Romania 1961. Romanian National Radio-Television Orchestra; Sile Dinicu, conductor; Moisés Vivanco, conductor on "Amor Indio," guitar; Cholita Rivero, second vocal. RIYL: Esquivel, Les Baxter, Martin Denny.
