The Tropical Recording Company was located at 1283 North King Street.
Tropical Records was a partnership between two legendary Hawaiian entertainers.
The George Naope Hula Studio was also located at 1283 North King Street, adjoining Johnny Almeida’s Music Studio at 1281 North King Street.
Since the two controlled the one story building, recording sessions were held in the large connected room in the center of the structure.
Today, we’ll share some of the rarest recordings made on the Tropical Recording Studio label, on “Hawaiian Recordings History – Tropical Records”!
