Sing Me a Song of Songmy (subtitled "A Fantasy For Electromagnetic Tape") is a moving anti-war statement by jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and Turkish musician Ilhan Mimaroglu, released in 1971.

It was Hubbard's third album released on the Atlantic label and features performances by Hubbard, tenor saxophonist Junior Cook, pianist Kenny Barron, bassist Art Booth and drummer Louis Hayes. The album also features a chorus, strings, recitations of poems by Fazil Husnu Daglarca and other texts, organists and tape-based musique concrète. It is one of Hubbard's most experimental albums, boasting a variety of processed sounds emanating from tapes.

Ilhan Mimaroglu was a musician and electronic music composer. He was born in Istanbul, Turkey, and moved to the United States working as a producer for Atlantic Records, where he created his own record label, Finnadar Records, in 1971. He also was the producer for Charles Mingus' Changes One and Changes Two, as well as Federico Fellini's Satyricon.
