Back to the 🎶, courtesy @rayzwingli78. The timeless #YmaSumac. If you haven’t had the pleasure of her voice in your field, please look her up and take a listen. Start with “Chuncho”. It’s one of my main vocal inspirations.
From Wiki…
“Sumac recorded an extraordinarily wide vocal range of 5 octaves, 3 notes and a semitone ranging from E2 to B♭7 (approximately 107 Hz to 3.7 kHz).[8] In one live recording of “Chuncho”, she sings a range of over four and a half octaves, from B2 to F♯7. She was able to sing notes in the low baritone register as well as notes above the range of an ordinary soprano and notes in the whistle register. Both low and high extremes can be heard in the song Chuncho (The Forest Creatures) (1953). She was also apparently able to sing in an eerie “double voice”.[9]” 🙌 #overtones #whatawoman
