Udaya Sound covers DragonMart concerts
UAE: Dubai-based rental house, Udaya Sound Creations, supplied the full audio, video, lighting and trussing solution for a string of concerts which took place recently at DragonMart. The free concerts were held over consecutive Fridays and saw performances from Balqees, Elissa, Tamar Hosny, Abdulla Bil Khair, Aryam, Grini, Aseel, Jamila, Mohammed Assaf and Myriam Fares.
For most of the concerts Udaya Sound deployed its Nexo Geo S cabinets in hangs of six per side. However, the backline required for the Elissa performance meant the rental company chose to fly its Nexo Geo T system, again six per side. Low frequency reinforcement for all of the concerts was courtesy of the manufacturer’s CD18 subs. Yamaha consoles were the mixers of choice with LS9 and PM5D desks employed. Completing the audio side of the project were Shure ULX-D microphones.
The lighting effects were via 30 Claypaky Sharpys while P3 LEDs run on Arkaos GrandVJ XT software provided the backdrop. Completing the solution was Prolyte H40V trussing used to fly the various elements.
‘The concert series was not actually challenging since we have done many mall shows, so we were very well prepared with measurements and mall hours and also neatness, ensuring no cables could be seen,’ recalled Udaya Sound’s Rinu Basheer. ‘There were large crowds for each event and we are very happy that the concerts were successful with good audio and lights.’
