The word “Karaoke” is formed by two joints Japanese words. “Kara” comes from “Karappo” meaning empty. “Oke” is shortened to “okesutura” which means orchestra. So, Karaoke means “empty orchestra”. ORIGINS This incredibly popular entertainment was born about 30 years ago in the city of Kobe, one of the three largest cities in Kansai (Japan).
However, another view holds that the Karaoke is earlier than the 70 that began on American television show. According to this version the Karaoke would go back to the 50s and 60s, where spectators sang along a ball on the text on their televisions.
Apparently it was after that when the Japanese turned it into a form of entertainment called “Karaoke”. During the first two decades of this popular fun it not left Japan. Later would come the rest of the world.

THE “KARAOKE BOX” With the evolution of karaoke emerged an obstacle in business, most Japanese houses were built of wood, with poor sound insulation, so it was very annoying to the neighbors at night singing with a microphone.
Although the karaoke was at first primarily for executives, has become a national pastime, thanks to technological development and a new business called the “karaoke box”.
These are acoustically isolated rooms, closed with a door, usually in the roadsides and highways where they can sing. It is advertised as a place where you can sing the volume of your heart. The first “karaoke box” appeared in 1984 in a rice field Okayama Prefecture in eastern Kansai. It was constructed by converting a car load. Since then, they have built “karaoke box” in unoccupied lands of Japan, and in urban areas, in the latter the “karaoke box” are divided into buildings and soundproof rooms. Currently there are more than 100,000 “karaoke box” in Japan.


Let us assume that we all love to sing. We sing in the car, in the shower and while cooking, but there is nothing like the feeling of getting up, grab the microphone and know that every look of the room is dirijida to YOU ??!.
Karaoke is always a “hit” in bars, restaurants, hotels, houses and even at weddings!
