Don't know if anybody heard the A L Lloyd series 'Songs of the People' many years ago in which he included a recording of a group of women from a tribe somewhere in Central Africa.
The story he told was that the women heard a recording of Jimmy Rodgers yodelling, thought the sound he made was so divine that they took him to be a god and composed a song in his honour - 'Jimi Roger' - one of the most erotic pieces of singing I have ever heard.
