(Click covers for more information & hear samples)
One of our Cord International's most popular CDs.

We experienced an unprecedented phenomenon of record
buying hysteria when Club Nisei was first released.
We could not keep them in stock!

Hawaii’s Japanese music performed circa 1947 - 1950’s. These talented performers are second generation Japanese Americans. They call themselves CLUB NISEI. The sons & daughters of migrant workers…Americans of Japanese ancestry… born & raised in Hawaii. The Nisei changed the course of Hawaii’s politics & economy forever…
they, in effect were the “bridge over troubled waters”.
