A great exotica album released in 1950 by Yma Sumac, a Peruvian singer with a voice range of over 4 octaves. This was produced by Les Baxter, a leading figure in exotic music along with Martin Denny, and is a theatrical virtual soundtrack on the subject of the ancient Inca Empire, of which Yma Sumac herself is said to be a descendant. With primitive percussion, grand orchestral sounds, and ethnic vocals/chorus ensembles, this album takes you to a different world, where you can fully enjoy the exoticism of this era. This is a later pressing.
