YU MWAMINIFU CONCERT by JAMES KAHERO
Amidst many challenges, Sound of worship (SOW Kenya) put together one of the best concert towards the end of the year. Working with the Visionary and Founder Mr. James Kahero since their last event in 2020, Sound Creations was excited to be the technical sponsor for this event.
The group’s last event was a major success, there was a lot to benchmark and scale up, and therefore every aspect of this 2021 event had to be well calculated.
By its own definition, it’s a venue ‘with contemporary architecture, Sarit Expo Centre is Kenya’s largest purpose-built venue that is located within a mall in Westlands, Nairobi, Kenya. The venue has stood out to be one of the best venues for exhibitions, concerts, conferences as well as individual & corporate events.
The biggest challenge with most venues especially for Live Recording concerts is Acoustics. The echo challenge is one that most often aspect that artists overlook and ends up becoming a nightmare to their production. Any venue can be aesthetically appealing, have the desired capacity, be convenient and easily accessible to the audience and finally within desired budgets; all these qualities fizzle down where acoustics are lightly or not considered.
With globally acceptable acoustic ratio in and between the halls as space within the space is flexible owing to movable wall partitions that helps to scale up or down based on the type of event and attendance. The vibrant life provided by the mall and all businesses within among other reasons made the Sarit Expo hall the best venue for the concert and overall, it proved so.
With first recognition to the Sounds of Worship (SOW KE) Founder Mr. James Kahero, one of the most tech-conscience and quality oriented visionary and investor. The SOW KE group also happens to be the biggest investor as a single entity in Shure IEM Systems from our inventory (Over 30 pieces and growing). As Exclusive Distributors, we are humbled and celebrate their dedication to only to embracing the technology but also pushing themselves to learn more and grow more.
