  1. Hi,
    Well, I’m Peruvian and I did like her music; however, is such a shame that almost no one here has learned that she has passed away.
    In any case, I’m also glad like people from overseas remember her, too.
    P.S. No, Peruvians don’t dress like the characters in “Flash Gordon”; those are Andean-style costumes. Obviously, Yma is wearing a sophisticated version of them.

  2. I never knew that Peruvians dressed like the characters in “Flash Gordon.”

  3. Graydon!
    I’m so glad to find out that I’m not the only non-Peruvian person to remember Yma Zumac. It was terrible to find out this way, of course, but her weird-ass music will live forever in the mind of her freaky fans. ¡Descansa en paz!
