Well done! I just this minute learned of the death of "the Incan Princess" and was very glad to see you marked it with these great videos. I've been a fan since the mid-90's during the whole "lounge/exotica music" boom and was very sad to hear of her passing.

I have been a huge fan of Yma Sumac since 1963, when my father took me to the cinema to see SECRET OF THE INCAS. I treasure the signed photos she sent to me now. A truly remarkable performer.
