Yma Sumac

Peruvian vocalist Yma Sumac was a popular exponent of a genre of music referred to as exotica in the 1950s. She recorded an extraordinarily wide vocal range of over 4 octaves. This clip is her singing a track entitled "Taki rari." For something even more unusual, listen to "Chuncho" in which she imitates forest animals.
