Carlos relies on AKG wireless and wired microphones


Carlos Elizalde

High Intensity Performer.

No one will ever accuse percussionist/singer/songwriter Carlos Elizalde of standing still. To call him an energetic performer is an understatement. When performing with Ruckatán, the seven-piece Latin, reggae and world music band he founded, San Francisco-based Carlos combines singing and high-energy percussion playing with nonstop dancing. He’s a man who can’t be tied down, so he shuns cords and relies on AKG wireless microphone technology for the freedom and performance it provides.

Stockholm University going digital

Universities are often a juxtaposition of the new and the old, the traditional and the groundbreaking. Tweedy grey-bearded professors working alongside tech-savvy hipsters.
