More Info:

Yma Sumac counts as one of the greatest divas the world has ever heard. By birth an Inca Princess - a direct descendant of Atahualpa, the last Inca Emperor - but better known as a queen of the exotica movement, this Peruvian singer who conquered the world had an incredible voice spanning four octaves. This 4 album set compiled by Olivier Julien contains every studio recording that Yma Sumac made from 1943 to 1959, and covers the Golden Age of a singer whose career reached the summits of international popular music.
