Mediating live music with modern audio tools (such as the DAW, and Digital Music Sequencer) is a common manifestation in Western civilisation; the culture that has determined the pace of technological evolution of sound control and the leadership platform in the political economy of sound. Traditionally, Juju music performance requires up to twenty-one or more personnel on a large stage. Also, the cold and dry climates of the global north have been known to be bad for its acoustic instruments such as the membranophones. These cause the need to use technology to relieve personnel and organic percussions. In this paper, I investigate the roles that audio engineering can play to reduce the cost of performance and production of the genre. I focus on the affordances of music sequencing hardware (such as arranger keyboard, drum machine, vocal harmoniser, DAW, and Sampler) to suggest practical ways to use these tools for live Juju music performance which could influence the quest for modern music pedagogy in the Global South.
