Design: Bears a strong similarity to the parent Odeon label from Germany, with slight variations such as the sunbeams behind the logo.

History: Evidently a subsidiary label of the German Odeon label. 'Criollo' is a genre of Peruvian dance music popular in South America, being first created by black African slaves. Perhaps the word 'criollo' bears some relationship to the American word 'creole,' which refers to African-French-influenced music of the Louisiana area.
