In the 1950s Mambo mania had reached fever pitch and a mysterious Peruvian beauty called Yma Sumac was the undisputed queen. Her startling five octave range and questionable ‘exotic’ history caused a sensation in Hollywood and beyond.
Ali McGregor now brings her astounding voice and charismatic presence to celebrate the tale of this mysterious icon.
The lure of mystery, heartbreak and above all – extraordinary singing.
McGregor’s voice is phenomenal. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Telegraph
