Los Indios Tabajaras

Selections from the album Always In My Heart (1964) by Los Indios Tabajaras. "...This pair of brothers, members of the Tabajara tribe of northern Brazil, were one of the most unlikely successes of the space age pop era. Nearly 20 years after they first began recording professionally and in the midst of the twist craze, they had a Top 10 pop hit with their cover of Maria Elena, a Mexican folk tune dedicated to the wife of a Mexican president first popularized in the U.S. by Jimmy Dorsey. Their eclectic act gathered Rimsky-Korsakoff, Chopin, De Falla, and Villa-Lobos with folk tunes and originals, performed in tuxedo and also half-naked with Indian ornaments." From Freddie's Music Collection.
