TOTO – An Overview
If you’re shopping for a comfortable, durable, and reliable toilet, you ought to consider purchasing from reputed brands such as Toto and Kohler. These two companies are recognized world-wide for their top-notch toilets and are well known by many homeowners and plumbers. In fact, many renowned plumbers and toilet experts recommend purchasing from these companies. However, what’s the best toilet brand?
The name of Toto is synonymous with luxury. It’s no wonder they are so popular among householders – especially those who share a common vision of “class and design.” To tell the truth, the company’s roots can be traced back to a small rice field in Japan in the late 1920s. There, a young man by the name of Kazuo Toitsu created the first ever toto band, which is still used today. He named the instrument after his dog Toto, who exhibited natural ability to perform various tricks.
Toitsu initially had no other intention but to create a musical instrument that would be able to play musical instruments, which is how Toto got its name. Over the years, Toitsu has released many well-received albums, including “Mystery Train,” “Reelin’ in the Years,” “Tears in Heaven,” and “The Day I Swapped My Dad For a Toy Car.” In addition to its stellar work ethic, the band is also well-known for its artistic sense and originality. Many of their original songs have been covered by artists such as Elvis, Ray Vaughan, Cream, and others. And of course, most of us are familiar with their hit “Reelin’ in the Years.”
The other half of the equation for TOTO is its lead vocalist and guitarist, Koji Tojong. This Japanese Rock Band has achieved worldwide popularity because of its powerful vocals. Unlike other Japanese Rock Bands, TOHO has never showcased its lead vocalist in their videos or in live performances. Its only performance so far was at a concert in Tokyo, during which Tojong performed solo. His impressive solo performance kicked off the sold-out concert. Not only has he sung and played guitar in solo performances before, he has also performed with many other Japanese Rock Bands such as Kamarri, Samurai Pizza, Pino Palladino, Meguro, and Crazy Baby.
So, what makes this band so popular with American tour participants? Well, despite being only four members, TOTO has a strong core of extremely skilled singers. They have proven their versatility and their ability to captivate audiences both in Japan and America. Because of these singers, TOTO has been able to build up an incredible repertoire of songs, which they can use for any setting be it a live performance, a recording, or a corporate event.
