Mambo! (Yma Sumac album). Mambo! is the fifth studio album by Peruvian soprano Yma Sumac.

Yma (characteristically) held nothing back, and the result was one of her more enjoyable LPs, with respectably swinging mambo grooves crafted by Billy May. "Five Bottles Mambo" is one of her most astonishing vocal workouts, dropping into guttural growls that are downright bestial, and making one wonder how exactly they got away with that in the conservative milieu of the 1950s.

Yma Sumac chronology. Legend of the Jivaro.

Mambo! is the fifth studio album by Peruvian soprano Yma Sumac. It was entirely composed by Moisés Vivanco. Yma Sumac (September 13, 1922 - November 1, 2008) was a noted Peruvian singer. In the 1950s, she was one of the most famous proponents of exotica music.

The following text appears on back of sleeve:
"The Mambo - as full of color as exotic 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 Moises 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!"
