São Vicente / Festival: Musicians and bands start check-sound late afternoon today

Mindelo, Aug 9 (Inforpress) – The bands and artists who form the program of this year’s edition of the Baia das Gatas International Music Festival, which begins this Friday, begin the indispensable check-sound late afternoon.

Inforpress found out late in the morning in Baia das Gatas that the installation of sound equipment is “normal” and today, according to those in charge, Dudu Araújo and Denis Graça begin the sound tests in the stage, with artists Dulce Pontes and Fantan Mojah doing the same, but on Friday.

Sound which should reach 65 thousand watts of power, in this edition, according to engineer Jorge Nunes, who deals with this aspect, and indicated that this year the structure of the stage contains some news.

At first, he indicated, by the seven-meter advance of the right flank of the stage, to those who will be in front of the structure, gaining a “new angle” that will “favor” the projection of the sound from the structures installed thereon.

The Baia das Gatas International Music Festival had its first edition on August 18, 1984, is held annually on the beach of the same name, eight kilometers from the City of Mindelo, and since that date only did not take place in 1995, due to an epidemic of cholera that ravaged Cabo Verde.
