Yma Sumac with Leslie Baxter

June 22nd, 2015 by jim

Here is some fun exotica music for your next jungle cruise. A 1951 Capitol records 78 album set:  Voice of the Xtabay by Yma Sumac with composition and orchestration by Leslie Baxter and Moises Vivanco.

I think Yma might have Mariah Carey beat for vocal range. She hits some amazingly high notes here.
