I just caught on to Yma Sumac, a Peruvian singer made famous in the 1950’s. She is so damn exotic it is just wonderful. She sounds like Maria Callas meets Esquivel meets jungle sound fx. She has a four octave vocal range with a strong soprano and a resonate bass. Here is a video you might like and yes that is her actual voice.
