Prototype Festival 2016

HERE Arts Center
145 6th Avenue, New York, NY 11217 map

We’re premiering our Yma Sumac opera-cabaret at the next Prototype festival this January! Who had the #1 album in 1950, outselling Bing Crosby and Ethel Merman? Yma Sumac, the Peruvian Songbird. Was the exotic diva with the five-octave range descended from the last emperor of the Incas? Or was she really Amy Camus, a housewife from Brooklyn? Bombay Rickey will use Yma’s story as a window into our culture’s obsession with authenticity, and as an excuse to play some really great music.
