50th Anniversary Reissue


One the Holy Grails of South American heavy progressive rock, originally released in 1973 by this Bolivian band. Influenced by hard-rock giants like Uriah Heep or Deep Purple, Wara (whose name translates to Light of the Star in the Aymara language) also added touches of their own Bolivian heritage to the mix, resulting in a pioneering work of fusion between prog/psych rock and Andean folklore. Raw fuzz-wah guitar, organ, occasional violin & flute, heavy drumming, passionate Spanish vocals a la Ian Gilan…


“El Inca” was originally pressed on black vinyl with very few copies on transparent green vinyl. Both editions are virtually impossible to find now.To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this legendary album, our reissue comes in standard black vinyl and also transparent green like the original (limited to 100 copies).

“Bolivian 1973 complex prog with folk & psych edges, topped by strange harmony vocals. Unique, excepting touches of Phoenix in how they mix cultural elements, and Vanilla Fudge in the vocals”
