U.K reissue of Yma Sumac's third album, recorded in 1953. Features unusual painted cover art in the same style as the original photograph. Because of the detail, very likely it was a painted over copy of the original photo and then reprinted onto the cover. Painted cover art seems typical of the early U.K. releases, such as Legend of the Sun Virgin with a similarly painted cover.
A review is available. A copy exists in the Archives in case there are specific questions about it. The Tiki logo is not on the actual artwork.

Down from the towering Andes comes the exotic music of an ancient civilization, sung by a fabulous Princess of its people. The lovely singer is YMA SUMAC and her music is INCA TAQUI, Chants of the Incans.
For three thousand years music has played a vital role in every activity of Inca life, and musicians have been the most honored members of the Inca community. Yma Sumac brings to the outside world the fullness and beauty of her people's spirit, singing traditional chants in a voice of magnificent range and emotional power. The language of the chants is K'eshwa, still spoken today by twenty million South Americans.
Moisés VIVANCO is an eminent authority on ancient music; he has drawn carefully upon native Incan melodies and rhythms in composing and direction the selections for this unique album.
