There has been in Cusco a great uncertainty of who will be the character that will give life to the Inca in the most important fiesta of the city of Cusco “inti Raymi”. The role of Inca is very important since the actor who represents him has to meet many requirements, one of them speaking the Quechua language.
Among nine proposals and after hours of deliberation, the Cusco Actor David Ancca was chosen to personify the Inca in the fiesta of Inti Raymi 2019. This was announced at the meeting held by the Municipal Enterprise of Fiestas and Celebrations of Cusco, EMUFEC.
David Ancca is a teacher in a public school in Lamay, Calca of the region of Cusco. His mother tongue is the Quechua language. He has performed many characters and one of them was Tupac Amaru II. We will also highlight that years ago, he played the Inca.
With the election of the new Inca, the actor awaits hard work and, together with the whole cast, will work against time for the staging of the Inti Raymi festival that is presented on June 24 of each year.
All the Cusqueño people and foreign visitors expect to see a Fiesta of the Sun like no other year and the actor from Cusco, David Ancca, will have to satisfy all expectations.
We are already in June and are beginning to enjoy all this beautiful fiesta for the jubilee month of the city of Cusco.
