Morocco Rocks With JBL VerTec As Filali Music Fields New JBL Line Array System

NORTHRIDGE, CALIFORNIA, August 23, 2007 — Marking the continued worldwide adoption of JBL Professional VERTEC® line arrays, regional rental sound company Filali Music recently deployed their new JBL VERTEC system at one of Morocco‘s premier annual events, “Festival des Musiques Sacres du Mondeo, Fes, 2007,” at Bab Boujloud, a large city square in the historical Moroccan city of Fez.

This year marked the 13th annual Festival des Musiques Sacres du Mondeo, or “Fez Festival of World Sacred Music.” International artists included Johnny Clegg, Angelique Kidjo, and more. The Festival draws thousands of visitors each year to celebrate Islamic heritage in Morocco‘s ancient holy city. The event not only features world-class musical talent, but also brings together politicians, religious leaders and social academics to discuss urgent sociopolitical issues.

The Festival of Sacred World Music also marked the first use of VERTEC line arrays by Filali Music. The main stage system setup included 12 VERTEC VT4888 midsize line array elements (six per side) and eight VT4880 arrayable subwoofers (four per side). System processing was handled by a dbx 4800 loudspeaker system controller, in combination with JBL‘s factory-approved DSP files.

“We were very satisfied with the first use of our new JBL VERTEC system at the Fez Festival of World Sacred Music, not only with its output capabilities but also with its musical quality,” noted Yousef Filali, owner of Filali Music. “Bab Boujloud is a vast area and can accommodate an audience of several thousand people. Our first event with VERTEC was a real success.”

“The Fez Festival of World Sacred Music in Morocco, and yet another VERTEC rental system in Africa, are significant benchmarks in the continued worldwide adoption of VERTEC line arrays,” said David Scheirman, Vice President of Tour Sound, JBL Professional. “We look forward to continuing our relationships with Filali Music and other leading regional rental sound system operators around the globe.”
