Historical notes
Liner Notes
The Mambo - as full of color and as exotic as it is - becomes infinitely more colorful and exotic when interpreted by the voice of Yma Sumac.

The incredible talent of this young woman is internationally renowned.  From festivals in her native village of Ichochan, high in the Peruvian Andes, to concert stages in the world's most cosmopolitan centers, audiences have acclaimed her voice as it soars and plunges dramatically through its fabulous range.

In this album of mambos the stirring voice of Yma Sumac creates melodic patterns as colorful and varied as the selections she sings - selections written for her by the talented South American composer Moisés Vivanco, and Billy May, who arranged and conducted the brilliant orchestral settings.

The mambo's excitement emerges from the amazingly infectious character of its beat - a rhythm so full of fascination that it has even been known to lure large groups of people from their daily responsibilities.  And if the mambo beat alone is an exotic community hazard, there's no telling what its effect will be when heard as recorded here by Yma Sumac!
