About Moisés Vivanco
I think that the most famous (South América) composer, who died in Spain, was an ancient music expert, and his rare composicions are still heard in Perú, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, Colombia. In London at the Royal Albert Music Hall, there is a Moisés Vivanco picture with pictures of others famous composers like Mozart, Chopin, Bethoven... so Vivanco was really a great south-american composer.

About Moisés Vivanco
Yes, you are right that Moises Vivanco was quite famous in South America and probably in many other countries. Here in the U.S. he is little known except to Yma Sumac's fans. Much of what he claimed to have written for her was probably written by others, most notably by Hernan Braña. When analyzing songs known to have been written by Braña, details to his style are quite evident to a degree too high to be coincidence in songs supposedly written by Vivanco. Of course, the same is true with some of Les Baxter's material.

The songs that Vivanco did write were actually simple outlines. The vocal impressions were done by Yma Sumac with her impressive flair and style. So she was co-writer of much of his work done when they worked together.
