Hawaiian recordings in the National Jukebox

About the NATIONAL JUKEBOX:

The Library of Congress presents the National Jukebox, which makes historical sound recordings available to the public free of charge. The Jukebox includes recordings from the extraordinary collections of the Library of Congress Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation and other contributing libraries and archives. Recordings in the Jukebox were issued on record labels now owned by Sony Music Entertainment, which has granted the Library of Congress a gratis license to stream acoustical recordings.

The Jukebox includes more than 10,000 recordings made by the Victor Talking Machine Company between 1901 and 1925.

Hawaiian Recordings:

I found 138 recordings by searching on the following keywords: Hawaiian, Hawaii, aloha, hula. Mind you, this list includes commercial Tin Pan Alley songs of the sort that Hawaiian musicians and audiences alike would reject, and it the list includes songs on the B-side of recordings by national artists like John Philip Sousaʻs Band, or the Victory Military Band.

Here is a list of song titles. In future posts Iʻll sort the list by artists, and by recording dates. Spellings are as they appear on the National Jukebox.

You can listen to the recordings on the National Jukebox site!!
