    Default Latin American singer HELP!

    I used to have an album by a singer whose name I can't spell correctly. I think she was called Edi Cormea. Very popular in South America in the 70's. But I need a definite spelling for the name. Anyone with knowledge of Latin American music who knows the artist I am on about?

    Stan, could it have been Elis Regina? Brazilian singer of some repute in the 1970`s

    Or.... closer to your spelling but not really brazilian is Eydie Gorme who is American (New Yorker) worked mostly in Big Bands doing swing type music, but did some latin style music in the mid seveties.

    Thanks Andy. It's Eydie Gormé. The way her name is written is what has had me snookered for years. I had her album Al Gormé, which I consider to be one of the best Latin American recording ever. Well worth picking up if anyone comes across it.

    I am not so much into Portuguese music, although samba is the exception.
    Eydie brings back certain nostalgic memories for me from my past life, when I mixed with South American dictators etc. in my teens. My uncle was secretary of state then, and another uncle had to go on TV at gun point once to announce the overthrow of the local elected government. Those were weird days...
