Fitzrovia Post and audio equipment reseller Scrub have joined forces to build and equip two identical sound studios for a Tiger Aspect series called Tinga Tinga Tales.

One is located in the live radio and music studio Homboyz in Nairobi, Kenya. The other is situated at Fitrovia Post.

Both are based around Icon D-Command ES consoles and include Genelec 5.1 monitoring, R++de microphones and DK metering.

Sound director and dubbing mixer/editor Rob Butler-Biggs and the Fitzrovia team specified precise room dimensions and monitor positioning to achieve precise consistency between the London and Nairobi facilities.

With one system already operational at Fitzrovia, the second system was set up at Tiger Aspect's offices in London, where Scrub contributed to the training of key Homeboyz personnel prior to them taking the system back to Kenya.

Based on African folk stories, Tinga Tinga Tales are in the style of Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories in that they tell how a number of animals came to be the way they are: these include “Why Lion Roars”, “Why Crocodile Has A Bumpy Back” and “Why Hippo Has No Hair.”

Entertainment Rights (ER) is managing worldwide distribution rights for the brand across all media.
