The band leader and violinist signs this postcard with him pictured playing the violin
Inscribed picture postcard signed: "Pour/Mr. Adolfo/Schwartz/Dajos/Bela" in black ink. 3½x5½. Dajos Béla (1897-1978) born Leon Golzmann, was a Russian violinist and band-leader. He studied music in Moscow and then later Berlin, where he started playing in local venues. He was contacted by Carl Lindström AG to make recordings and started his own salon orchestra. This is when he changed his name to the more Hungarian-sounding Dajos Béla, Hungarian or Romanian music then being popular in Germany. His orchestra became one of the most popular in Germany and gained a high reputation abroad. As soon as the Nazis came to power in 1933 Béla, who was Jewish, started touring abroad. In 1935 he travelled to Buenos Aires, where he remained for the rest of his life. He often recorded under different names and as part of other bands, such as The Odeon Five, Mac's Jazz Orchestra and the Clive Williams Jazzband. Toned. Some wear on surface. Corners rounded. Upper left corner creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
