Yma Sumac was a popular Peruvian singer noted for her range of over four octaves (sometimes she claimed five octaves).  During the Fifties, publicists decided to cloak her in mystery, claiming that she might be Incan princess, a direct descendent of the last Incan king, or she might be a Brooklyn housewife whose real name was Amy Camus.  Neither claim was true.
