SHREM'S WORLDLY DELIGHTS: "Taki Rari" - Yma Sumac + "Estaba Escrito" - Monna Bell
I've got two delicious vintage Latin recordings for you today. First up it's the legendary Peruvian soprano Yma Sumac and her exotic take-on mambo with "Taki Rari". Following this sonic otherworldliness we have a Chilean queen of merengue Miss Monna Bell and her "Estaba Escrito" a song maestro Pedro Almodovar used for his feature debut "Pepi, Luci, Bom y otras chicas del montón".
