Yma Sumac - Cinco Botellas Sorry for "Chicken talk" title. Known for her astonishing 4 1/2 octave vocal range, Yma Sumac (AKA Ima or Imma Sumack) is from Ichocán, Peru, a town high in the Andes. From an early age she performed in radio and movies and made recordings throughout South America. She came to the United States in the 1940s and performed with a small group of musicians and dancers. When she signed with Capitol Records in 1950 her stage name's spelling was changed to the more exotic "Yma Sumac." An urban legend that she is really "Amy Camus," a nice Jewish girl from Brooklyn, originated in 1951 with a joke among musicians repeated in one of Walter Winchell's gossip columns. She has acted in several films and stage shows, and continued to perform into the 1990s. She lives in Los Angeles and has been contemplating new releases of recordings of her most recent concerts.

Mambo Confusion - Yma Sumac Yma Sumac's last recording. For what I know, "Mambo Confusion" was released as a single in 1991 in a very limited edition and only in Germany. It is a mix (or remix) version of her Gopher Mambo, Chicken Talk, and a few other of Yma's songs (I would say Chuncho - The Forest Creatures is also present between 3:20 - 3:30). Yma, however, recorded some new vocals especifically for this song.

yma sumac - xtabay themain intention of this youtube-account is to feature mixes and tracks somewhere between deep-minimal-dub techno/house and sounds from detroit/chicago. well, it's sometimes hard to categorize and some tracks won't fit into that pattern at all. let's eclecticize a bit. anyway, it's music that i would like to share with others. constructive comments are highly appreciated! - support the music : buy vinyl - track: xtabay artist: yma sumac label: capitol year: ??? taken from the best-of LP "chanto incas". originally from her first capitol album "voice of the xtabay" (1950). yma sumac died on november 1, 2008. RIP.
Yma Sumac gets furious and leaves the stage. READ THIS. I hesitated to put this on Youtube. I talked this over with mrs. Sumac's personal assistent. As you can see he commented on one of the clips. In no way i want to make fun of mrs. Sumac. But it is a curiousity and it shows her 20.000 years old temper..... And if she is shown no respect, she is absolutely right.

YMA SUMAC - "Chuncho" ("The Forest Creatures") 1953 Yma Sumac (pronounced /ˈiːmə ˈsuːmæk/; September 13, 1922 -- November 1, 2008) was a noted Peruvian soprano. In the 1950s, she was one of the most famous proponents of exotica music and became an international success, based on the merits of her extreme vocal range, which was said to be "well over four octaves" and was sometimes claimed to span even five octaves at her peak. Yma Sumac recorded an extraordinarily wide vocal range of more than four octaves from B2 to C#7 (approximately 123 to 2270 Hz). She was able to sing notes in the low baritone register as well as notes above the range of an ordinary soprano. Both low and high extremes can be heard in the song Chuncho (The Forest Creatures) (1953). She was also apparently able to sing in an eerie "double voice". www

Wigstock Lady Bunny Yma Sumac Mambo Wigstock Lady Bunny performing Yma Sumac's Mambo Malambo N 1. A Celebration of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Big Hair! Wigstock is an annual outdoor drag festival that began in the 1980s in New York's East Village that takes place on Labor Day. Traditionally the festival would act as the unofficial end to the summer for the gay community of New York City. The name references the 1969 Woodstock Festival.
Sisyphus, the frog - with music by Yma Sumac The image of this frog which almost vainly tries to escape the artificial world, is reminiscent of Sisyphus. He had gotten the eternal punishment to push a heavy boulder up a steep hill, only to watch it roll back down into the depths. The gods punished him because he had tried to circumvent their laws, and thus nature. The HD quality allows the viewer very close to the frog. The video shows the unease of the frog exposed to the artificial, blue-green polyester imitation of him otherwise so familiar surroundings. The synchronization with the music makes it a bit painfully lighter to watch. Yma Sumac's 'Chuncho' makes it seem as if the frog is consenting in this circus act which we make him perform.

Yma Sumac - "Puru's Precious Gift to the World" Yma Sumac was well known in the 1950s for her incredible 4 1/2 octave range voice. She was born in the Peruvian Andes, and according to the information contained on the CD folder, was "a descendant of the last of the Incan kings." She spent her childhood 'talking' to animals (which you'll believe once you hear another sound track which is not included in this video presentation). She had formal training for her voice but did not become famous outside of Peru and South America until her performance at the Hollywood Bowl in 1950. One reason I made this video was to celebrate and publicize Yma Sumac's incredible voice, which is really and truly an INSTRUMENT. The other reason I made this video was to counter the suggestion recently made that Michael Jackson's four octave range was not possible or could not be achieved without artificial means. This is not true. There are a few people - and this is EXTREMELY RARE - who do possess such range with their singing voices. That ability, however, must be developed, like any other talent. Enjoy this incredible woman's gift of singing! I hope you enjoy the roses. I wanted to show the lovely rose gardens at The Huntington Gardens and Library, and thought Yma Sumac's vocals would be perfectly set against this backdrop. The title of the song is "Ripui" (Farewell).
Yma Sumac - Wayra Yma Sumac sings "Wayra - Dance of the Winds" from her album "Voice of the Xtabay." A wonderful track with a delightful rhythm and whimsical melody -- all, of course, supplemented by Yma Sumac's incredible 4 1/2 octave voice. Listening to this aria, it is easy for one to understand why it is called the "Dance of the Winds," and why Yma Sumac -- that beautiful Incan princess of song -- was called "The Nightingale of the Andes."

Ernie Kovacs - Guest Yma Sumac sings "Tumba" (Earthquake) [From "Kovacs Corner" on ] - This is a somewhat legendary kinescope from video annals of Ernie Kovacs. On August 13, 1956, exotic singer Yma Sumac performed on Ernie's NBC summer replacement show for "Caesar's Hour'. The "kine" starts with the standard era commercial plugs all done by Kovacs' long time announcer and sketch buddy, Bill Wendell. (I wish I was a fly on the wall when Walt was told about the intro bit with the Mickey Mouse ears!). Ernie then proceeds to a typical quirky Kovacsian monologue filled with abstract visual bits. Other than the name of a specific color for Alfa-Romeo cars, I cannot reference a concert pianist by the name of "Lothar Pearl". Most likely it is a gag name and he is a member of Ernie's accomplished NBC studio orchestra lead by Harry Salznick. He then goes on to introduce Ms. Sumac's production number. From a web piece by Stephen Thomas Erlewine and Cub Kod on "" here is a brief bio on Ms. Sumac "The enigmatic Yma Sumac performed this tune live on the Kovacs show in 1956, surrounded by an exotica tableau of Tiki masks, flaming torches, and volcanic smoke. A kinescope of the performance exists. A singer with an amazing four-octave range, Yma Sumac was said to have been a descendant of Inca kings, an Incan princess that was one of the Golden Virgins. Her offbeat stylings became a phenomenon of early-'50s pop music. While her album covers took advantage of her strange costumes and voluptuous figure, rumors abounded ...

Edible wild plants: Staghorn Sumac - Rhus typhina (Wilderness survival tips and courses) Sumac, is one of 250 species of flowering plants in the genus Rhus and related genera, in the family Anacardiaceae. Sumacs are shrubs and small trees that can reach a height of 110 metres. "sumac-ade," "Indian lemonade" or "rhus juice". This drink is made by soaking the drupes in cool water, rubbing them to extract the essence, straining the liquid through a cotton cloth and sweetening it. Native Americans also used the leaves and berries of the smooth and staghorn sumacs combined with tobacco in traditional smoking mixtures.
