Multilingual Karaoke Machine Encourages Passers-By To Sing In Public

Multilingual Karaoke Machine Encourages Passers-By To Sing In Public

Urban Republic creates a project on the streets of Vancouver to get the isolated urban population interacting with each other.

Non-profit art organization, Urban Republic, launched the Sing! Karaoke Kiosk in the busy streets of Vancouver, Canada. The project utilized art and design to engage a diverse community. The karaoke machine offered songs in the city’s most widely spoken languages, including English, French, Mandarin, Japanese, Cantonese, Filipino, Hindi, and Spanish.

Passers-by were able to view and pick a selection of songs from the machine, and take the mic to sing in front of a public audience. The lyrics appeared on a screen in front of them so they could happily belt out a tune. The project provided a perfect opportunity to get everyone interacting, and enjoying the off-the-cuff performances.
