Karaoke is one of the most popular means of entertainment, a new brand of karaoke is now emerging, curry karaoke providing an alternative night out full of laughs.
Karaoke is the act of singing along to recorded background music; it originates from Japan and in Japanese means empty orchestra.
It is rumoured that karaoke was invented In Japan in the 1970s, when a Japanese musician was asked by fans to provide a recording of his performance so that they could sing along on their vacation. Realising this potential the musician then developed a machine that for 100 yen would play his songs; the machine was originally leased out and not immediately available in stores as they are nowadays. Unfortunately for the Japanese musician a Filipino businessman recognised the potential market for such a machine and patented a sing-a-long system to be sold in stores along with the music.
Karaoke’s popularity has lasted since its invention in the 1970’s and has continued to be a popular form of entertainment and it has reached great success across the globe. Many bars, restaurants and clubs install karaoke machines into their venue, or hold karaoke nights to capitalise upon its popularity.
