But with the inauguration of the Relais de l'Alima marina in Oyo, this collaboration reached new heights.

The event - Inauguration of the "Relais de l'Alima" marina

In 2023, the Crystal Drones team was asked to build a unique show in Oyo, hometown of Congo President Denis Sassou Nguesso, to mark the inauguration of the "Relais de l'Alima" marina.

An ambitious 800-drone light show was produced, also incorporating laser effects and an immersive soundtrack, with the central idea of celebrating and highlighting the Congo for its crucial role as the "lung of the world".

The show marked an historic first, being the first drone light show ever staged in the Congo, adding an extra dimension of novelty and innovation to the event.

The storyboard for this show has been carefully crafted to captivate the audience through a series of symbolic images and scenes, highlighting the fauna, flora, culture and achievements of the Congo.

The sixth panel of the show took on a special significance, as it paid respectful tribute to President Denis Sassou Nguesso, in his presence.

This symbolic representation was accompanied by an inspiring melody, reflecting respect and admiration.

The performance took place under the captivating eyes of the President, adding an emotional dimension and significant impact to the event.

The show ends on a note of gratitude, thanking participants and audience alike, while leaving a lasting impression of hope and beauty.
