Owners of New York label «Arka Records» were Yaroslav Pastushenko and Roman Poritok. Label is distinguishable by its repertoire that consisted exclusively of recordings of Ukrainian soloists and choruses, existed at that time. The only exception is a few recordings copied from Polish label “Syrena-Electro” in 1934. The paper labels were of different design and color, depending on series that started with 100 (numbers approximately up to 150 belonged to Canadian branch), 200, 400, 500 and 600. One can find records of such soloists as soprano: E.Mozgova, N.Andrusiv, tenors: M.Scala-Staritsky, O.Rusnak, V.Tisyak, baritone M.Minsky, New York chorus «Dumka», bandura ensemble of Levitsky and Yurevich, records with dance and light music. The total number of records «Arka» is about 100.
In catalog series 500 (maybe not only in it) in the advertising catalogs in newspapers they included records of other companies as well. Moreover, the real and the bogus numbers are mixed up: for example, 520 and 526 are the real numbers of American Arka records, and between them are bogus numbers 521 ... 525 that correspond to CD1 ... CD5 of "Chwyli Dnistra" records.
