Melodia (USA) [Hits: 1417]  Discuss on forum [0]

"Melodia Record Co." was a Chicago-based recording studio founded in 1950 by Jan Wojewódka (1919-1992), a Polish artist (founder of the ensemble "Wesoła czworka lotników") and the most famous impresario of Polish popular music in the United States. The company operated until 1980s, producing records both of emigre Polish singers and of artists of Polish People's Republic. List of its records contains about a hundred of 78 rpms and not less than sixty 12" LPs, mainly in the genre of variety songs. Some of "Melodia" records were copied by other companies (such as Polonia in U.K. and Carinia in Australia). The same company probably had some connections with Detroit-based label Amerpol.
