Walaycho Qorilazo. Memoria Oral Quechua en los Andes is a testimony book of one of the most outstanding Quechua speakers in Peru (Mario Molina Almanza best known as Walaycho Qorilazo). The recording of 36 audios of Quechua oral testimonies, transcription, translation into Spanish, research study, and lexicographic notes was developed by Odi Gonzales,Peruvian poet, researcher and professor of Quechua Program at NYU.
More than his life itself, the most amazing aspect of the book is the way how Walaycho narrates all kind of experiences using oral narrative strategies and Andean cultural categories such as 6 ways of past tense, 14 collective types of plural, the internal monologue, the notion of cyclical time, among others.
The book was sponsored by 2017 Faculty Grants of Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) and The Center for the Humanities at NYU. The book includes an audio CD.
