Takeo Ischi buildup in Tōkyō and studied after the school mechanical engineering, since it should take over once the enterprise of its father. But it came differently. In its spare time it was inspired by Zither and Hackbrett, so that it taught itself in Tōkyō alone playing these instruments. From the Jodlerkönig Franzl long he procured the records and learned themselves a yodelling, so that he got soon an appearance on the Japanese television. Then it went to Europe and sang in Switzerland in a tourist restaurant close Zurich forwards, where it was engaged immediately by the landlord. Then it sang with its Idol Franzl long forwards, which took it under its wings and into the transmission “early practices” with Maria Hellwig brought.
