Friday 13 Oct 2006: Karaoke
The Japanese word Karaoke is a combination of "kara" or "karano", meaning "empty", and "okesutora", meaning "orchestra", which means the name for this popular Japanese pastime literally translates as "empty orchestra". Karaoke in its present form is said to have been invented by Japanese artist Daisuke Inoue in the early 1970s.
