about

The karaoke machine is much more than an instrument which allows us to be a star for three minutes. The contributors to this lively collection address the importance of karaoke within Japanese culture and its spread to other parts of the world, exploring the influence of karaoke in such different societies as the United Kingdom, North America, Italy, Sweden, Korea and Brazil. They also consider the nature of the karaoke experience, which involves people as singers, co-singers and listeners.

..."this book is recommended reading for anyone interested in cultural practices in music making. It bears cosideration for its conclusions about how and why different cultures adopt a musical technology and share musical behaviors, and for its look into the ways authors from different cultures think about these issues.."
