Recording Details
Inca Taqui

catalog no: LAL 9023
10" LP pressing of Yma Sumac's third album, recorded in 1953.  There were few reissues because it was later paired with Voice of the Xtabay as the second side of the 12" LP format and on nearly all releases under that title.  Today it is generally considered a part of the Xtabay album.

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.

Capitol Records - Monophonic - ca.1953 United States   10" LP

Historical notes
Liner Notes
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.
