The tomb of an early
chick singer female vocalist has been discovered in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings. University of Basel archeologists found the remains of the chanteuse in a coffin identifying her as Nehmes Bastet, singer of the god Amun Re. Her vocal gifts were discovered after an exhaustive kingdom-wide talent search conducted by her father, the high priest of Amun Re.
Nehmes Bastet performed in the 22nd Dynasty, about 3000 years ago, before MP3s or even CDs, so forget about streaming audio. We cannot, however, rule out an appearance on this season’s Saturday Night Live.
The tomb of Nehmes Bastet was actually found last year, but sealed so Egypt could get time off to have a revolution. When the tomb was opened on Monday, the mummy was described as “nicely wrapped,” so expect a new Nehmes Bastet fashion line in stores this summer.
