Hawaiian Recordings History - Decca

Decca Records was a British record label established in 1929 by Edward Lewis.
The U.S. branch of the label was introduced in late 1934, and in the same year Hawaiian music began to be recorded in the Decca’s Los Angeles studios.
The name “Decca” dates back to a portable gramophone called the “Decca Dulcephone” patented in 1914.
That company was eventually renamed “The Decca Gramophone Co.,Ltd.”, and later shortened to the now familiar, “Decca”.
Today, we’ll share some of those rarest recordings made in 1934 through 1940 with, “Hawaiian Recordings History - Decca”.
