ABOUT TAKII 12 ~UNITED WE STAND~
It wasn't that long ago that The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational concluded its landmark 11th season, celebrating over 5 glorious years of "the most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" the Universe has ever seen. It also marked the birth of "a new generation of celebration" with the addition of more Co-Coordinators, tweaked festivities, & a more greatly enhanced relationship with our venue, The Rotunda. Since that fateful weekend in May 2011, we've been working feverishly on feedback we've received from our fans, combined with brand new opportunities, to produce what the world shall know as TAKII 12 ~United We Stand~! Returning to Philly, PA's own The Rotunda on Oct. 22nd - 23rd, 2011, our FREE ENTRY 12th season looks brightly towards the future with a Halloween-themed spirit of life, love, & fusion festival equality.
