Hello, Sumac fans!
Yma Sumac's "Royal Anthem" is included in the new James Bond soundtrack! Remember that last year iPone12 commercials also used an Yma Sumac track, that one being "Gofer Mambo." Other great new projects are on the horizon for Sumac's 100th birthday next year. Fans all over the world are encouraged to celebrate in their own way. The Diva would love that, as she gave concerts in all 4 corners of the world and considered herself an "international singer."
Wonderful new and exclusive Yma Sumac prints have been added to the SHOP page! They will take your breath away. Sizes come in 8X10 and 11X14. Have a look here.
In light of continuous online rumors and fabrications about Yma Sumac in the Spanish speaking press, we decided it was necessary to address the rumors in two short new videos: Yma Sumac and her star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Yma Sumac on Broadway. English versions are available here and here.
A new page called Trivia has been added and is full of unusual and truthful facts about Yma Sumac.
There is a new ABOUT US page added to the site, as well. There were theft and copyright infringement issues in 2020 that made it necessary. We are definitely having it translated to Spanish, as well.
We are proud to announce the Yma Sumac track "Gopher Mambo" has made it onto the new iPhone 12 commercial! She definitely deserves the attention!
On our own music page is a wonderful exclusive album called "The Voice" featuring all live performances of the Diva recorded all over the world. These songs are songs she always wanted to record in studio but never got to. The album is extraordinarily diverse in its content and below is a sample of most of the tracks:
At last... a 100% accurate and detailed Yma Sumac timeline! Seventy-five to 85% of what you read about Yma Sumac online is nonsense, including her badly researched Wikipedia entry. Our new and exclusive timeline was researched by the Diva's own (signed) archived documents and letters (both professional and personal), as well as hundreds of private photographs. Countless vintage worldwide news clippings and original tour itinerary were also part of the research. So if you or anyone you know is writing a blog, photo caption, short bio, magazine article, book or talking about Yma Sumac via TV, podcast, radio, video - you can refer them to this timeline. There are some shockers here that will change past Yma Sumac history and folklore.
NOTE: if you would like to change Wiki's inaccuracies based on facts you find here, we welcome that and we thank you, as well.
Digital downloads of exclusive non-commercially released Yma Sumac music are available again, with samples of each track and promo videos. As well, there are exclusive beautiful Yma Sumac prints available printed directly from the Diva's own vintage transparencies and negatives.
Here is a link to the Yma Sumac music in the SHOP.
Below is our latest promo video of Sumac singing Mozart's Queen of the Night (her way) and a never before vocalized version of Debussy's Clair de Lune. Those can both be found on the exclusive CD The Voice.
Yma Sumac has a wonderful and rather intimate Instagram page. It's about three years old now. There are all sorts of rare and exclusive things to see there.
That's about it for now.
