Nipper and Hawaiian Music, 1917.


To insure Victor quality, always look for the famous trademark, “His Master’s Voice.” It is on every Victrola and every Victor Record. It is the identifying label on all genuine Victrolas and Victor Records.

All the fascination of Hawaiian music is in these Victor Records

There is a quaint and dreamy beauty to the music of Hawaii as it comes like the whispering breeze from the mid-Pacific. It breathes the lightsome spirit of this land of sunshine. Its laguorous rhythm is typical of Hawaiian life, of the swaying trees, the beating surf, of the joys and sorrow of this interesting music-loving people.

And all the enchantment of Hawaiian music, all the charms of their quaint instruments, all the peculiar beauties of their light voices are brought to you on Victor Records. You are in fancy transported to these far-off islands.
