HARMAN Professional Solutions Brings Premium Sound and Lighting to the Sufi Route Festival in India

India’s first folk, poetry and Sufi music festival deploys JBL Professional speakers and Martin lighting to deliver an exceptional audience experience

HARMAN Professional Solutions recently partnered with HARMAN Global Brand Ambassador and Grammy Award-winning artist A.R. Rahman to produce The Sufi Route—India’s first folk, poetry and Sufi music festival.

HARMAN Professional Solutions was the official technology partner of the concert, which was held on November 18, 2017 at the Qutub Minar, one of New Delhi’s most iconic and historic monuments. The lineup featured legendry artists such as Javed Akhtar, Nooran Sisters, Hans Raj Hans, Mukhtiar Ali, Kamna Prasad Sood, Fouzia & Firoz, Dhruv Sangari and a Whirling Dervish ceremony from Turkey.

The Sufi Route and HARMAN partnered with The Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation to make the show accessible to 35 students with hearing loss, in support of the organization’s “A Billion Acts for Peace” campaign. Students from the Centrum GRO Advanced Skill Training Center for the Deaf enjoyed the performances using four translators and vibrations from JBL speakers.

“HARMAN Professional is proud to be associated with a concert of this genre and scale,” said Prashant Govindan, Senior Director, HARMAN Professional Solutions, India & SAARC. “Martin lights created the ambience, while JBL sound solutions rendered music exactly the way artists intended for their audience. The Sufi Route was also made accessible to hearing impaired attendees including children, which is even more heart-warming.”

The HARMAN audio system was comprised of 24 JBL VTX V25-II loudspeakers, 4 clusters of Vertec VT4888 loudspeakers, 9 VTXG28 subwoofers, and 6 VTX S28 subwoofers. In addition to the main system, the venue deployed VRX932LA-1 loudspeakers for out fills, STX835 loudspeakers forside fills, and VRX915M speakers for stage monitors. Crown I-Tech 12000HD and I-Tech 4x3500HD amplifiers provided power for the entire system, and JBL Performance Manager software was used for configuration and control.

The performances were mixed on two Soundcraft Vi3000 consoles and a Soundcraft Vi6 console. Artists relied on AKG microphones for vocal and instrument reproduction, including the DMS800 Vocal Set, Drum Set Premium, D40, C518, C5 and D5. The Martin lighting rig for the main stage included 36 MAC Quantum Wash fixtures, 48 MAC Aura LED wash fixtures, 12 Rush MH7 Hybrid fixtures and 12 Mac Axiom Hybrid fixtures.
