Australian Tour?
I work in the archives section of a TV station in Australia, and recently discovered some footage of Miss Sumac being interviewed at Sydney airport, that screened on the news in May 1968. The segment is appropriately titled 'Four Octaves'.

Does anyone know if Yma Sumac performed in Australia? I suppose I'm hoping there is the possibility that there exists some footage of any performances here, and the more information I have, the easier it would be to find.

The interview I have is very short, only 24 feet (approx 45 seconds).

Jonathan, Yma Sumac performed several times through the years at a night club called "Chequers," which I believe was in Melbourn. The first time was probably sometime in the late '60s. I will look through my previews and reviews to see if there is any additional informormation that might be of use.
