One-off

Following candidates for the Karaoke World Championships in Finland, and in their countries of origin – Spain, Japan, the Philippines and Holland – we look at the origins of the phenomenon, its history and its cultural and social impact.
 
 

In the space of 40 years, Karaoke has become a global phenomenon that has spread across all social classes and is now a planet-wide popular activity. Who hasn’t spent an evening in a Karaoke bar?
Today, the karaoke social phenomenon has permeated all fields of pop culture. Does that mean we can speak of a “Karaoke culture”?
