Elizabeth Lands: Ku Ku Ba
Here is a folk song by a very little-known but very original singer from the fifties, Elizabeth Lands. Born in Harlem, she began singing at an early age, and made a hit on the gospel circuit. Then a composer heard her singing in a Brooklyn club and composed a whole album of arrangements for the singer who possessed, as the copywriters claimed, a unique talent: "Elizabeth Lands has an Yma Sumac range with a Mahalia Jackson soul!"
