Early Yma Sumac: the Imma Sumack sessions
For the very first time, all eighteen tracks from Yma Sumac's first recording sessions in 1943 are now available, along with five others by El Conjunto Folklorico Peruano de Moisés Vivanco and soloists that were part of the same sessions on one fully remastered CD and released on the Blue Orchid label in the U.K.

This earliest material was recorded in Argentina under the name Imma Sumack, which was her original name and is a must-have for any Yma Sumac fan. For those who have not heard this early material, it is quite different than the Hollywood exotica that she recorded later. Even at such a young age, her range is very obvious and her ability to mimic the instruments is nothing short of amazing.

Produced by's Web master, Don Pierson, this new release contains an extensive booklet which highlights Yma Sumac's early career and provides insights and analysis of each track on the recording along with many period photos.
