Disco Mambo: Ima Sumac

We start the February month with a disco treatment of Yma Sumac's classic "Gopher Mambo". I've always wanted to remix this campy tune by Peruvian soprano and goddess Yma Sumac. Zoila Augusta Emperatriz Chavarri del Castillo was born in the seacoast city of Callao, Peru on September 13th, 1922 and it is believed she was an Inca princess. She was descendant from the last Incan emperor, Atahualpa.  She is known as a major player of exotica music for her extreme vocal range.  Enoy!
