For some reason she reminded me of Yma Sumac, the "Inca Princess".
".... if you're not familiar with Ms.Sumac, she sang wordless vocals
in various exotic settings with a voice that defied belief and a
range that covered several octaves......."
".....It is fairly uncommon for an untrained singer to have a vocal
range of two octaves. Trained singers aspire to three octaves but
sometimes fall short of that goal. It is practically unheard of to
have at one's command a vocal register of four and one half octaves.
Indeed, it is somewhat freakish, and musicians usually have no idea
how to exploit such a phenomenon to its best advantage."
