The IMDB says she was from Peru and that she made recordings in South America when she was a child. It also says that the "Amy Camus" story is an urban legend and was made up as a joke by muscians and picked up by Walter Winchell.

Since she had been billed as Ima and Imma Sumack before settling on Yma Sumac, it seems unlikely that the story is true, since there's be no reason to pick the "Amy Camus" anagram.
