dBTechnologies at the debut Yetu Festival
KENYA: Ngong Racecourse recently played host to the inaugural Yetu Festival. The event, which was jointly organised by Kiss FM and Johari Kenya, saw a roster of Kenyan artists, old and new, take to the stage while those in attendance were treated to a combination of Kenyan food, art and music. Brought in to provide the audio setup for the event was Sound Creations’ rental partner Homeboyz Entertainment, which supplied a dBTechnologies setup.
The sound setup comprised 12 DVA T12 line arrays flown besides four DVA S1518N in an L-R configuration. Ground stacked at the front of the stage were eight S30 monitors. Shure wireless microphones were used by the performers and an Avid Venue SC48 console was employed for mixing duties. Several JBL PRX 400 speakers were deployed to complement the sound solution and Homeboyz also provided a Yamaha keyboard and PR Lighting fixtures.
‘I use dBTechnologies for most of my events,’ said Antoine Canella, lead sound engineer at Homeboyz. ‘The system has a throw of 50m and a high level of clarity. It is very reliable.
‘The client was very happy with the audio and was impressed with the quality of equipment,’ he added. ‘The event went smoothly with no technical challenges whatsoever.’
