Half-Mast: Yma Sumac



(Click to enlarge the legend.)

Fans of classic exotica, give your copy of Voice of Xtabay a spin and pay tribute to the amazing, multi-octave stylings of the original Lounge Diva. You'll imagine yourself in some strange, tropical island...or perhaps attending a party at Jackie Treehorn's house. She may not have been a real Peruvian princess like her press kits claimed, but she was royalty in high fidelity.
(Apologies again for the double post/email. Another premature upload - the eyes needed work.)
