Pop and Jazz in English and French - "Karafun Karaoke" Open Mic Event

 

Let’s Sing Pop & Jazz in English & French Casually at Karaoke!

 

In Kagurazaka, Tokyo, known as the "Little France" of Japan,

we host an Open Mic event every month, co-sponsored by Chansonia.net and The Glee (a live hall in Kagurazaka),

where people who love Pop and Jazz in English and French can gather, sing, and enjoy socializing.

We use "Karafun" karaoke, which includes over 42,600 English songs and over 8,100 French songs from various music genres.

There are also songs in German (2,580), Spanish (2,380), Italian (920) and Dutch (770), as of June 2024.

Participants are also welcome to perform with live piano or guitar.

Enjoy singing on a live hall stage with superb acoustics, under the spotlight, and feel like an artist!

All while enjoying delicious wine and light snacks.

 

We warmly welcome foreigners residing or staying in Japan to participate.

We hope it will be a wonderful opportunity to interact and have fun with Japanese people who love singing in English and French.
