Bad sound blamed for Hill's performance

Cape Town - Technical challenges were the cause of the sound issues experienced during the first half of Lauryn Hill's performance at this year's Cape Town International Jazz Festival which took place on 30 and 31 March.

The organisers, espAfrika, said it was unfortunate that some people left the building before the show ended.

"We are upset that Hills' performance was troubled by technical issues and that the audience only got to experience her sensational talent half way through her set," CEO Rashid Lombard said.

Equipment malfunction

According to a statement released by espAfrika, the technical issues were the result of an equipment malfunction that resulted in Hill's sound check settings being deleted.

As soon as this was realised Hill's technical team worked rapidly to correct the problem.

"Modern sound equipment is unfortunately not immune to accident and misfortune. The equipment provided by espAfrika met all the technical specifications requested by Hill's technical team, however, an unfortunate equipment error resulted in the first half of her set being overshadowed by poor sound.

"The sound did however improve and the audience eventually got to experience a superb show," said Lombard.
