CHAP KUCHING




1934 - 1941


CHAP KUCHING was one of the earliest local record labels. It was set up by Moutrie & Co. Ltd. in 1934, and specialised in Malay records.

CHAP KUCHING was originally managed by Thomas Hemsley. He eventually left to set up his own label, Chap Singa in 1937.

The label ceased operations in 1941.
