2014 Mozambique MinisterMinister Carvalho Muaria, the Mozambique Minister responsible for Tourism and Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture had discussed earlier this agreed together that Mozambique would be present to showcase its culture and in so doing its people at the Carnaval International de Victoria. Mozambique along with KwaZulu Natal of South Africa, the Kingdom of Swaziland and the Seychelles are all working together in the EAST3ROUTE Tourism Organisation promoting cross border tourism to help grow tourism in Africa.

Mozambique will be using this great opportunity at the carnival in Seychelles to promote its rich and diversified culture to the world. To this aim, the local singer LILOCA will be the queen of the Mozambique artist group, joined by the MAQUINISTAS dancers. Together they will perform a variety of local dance and music, both from the south, center and north of the country. A total of 12 artists will be integrated in the Mozambique delegation and they have said that they will proudly showcase their culture and their people to ensure Mozambique is recognised by the world as a serious tourism destination.

Sherin Naiken, the CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board saw the Mozambique singer LILOCA in action when she participated in the 2013 EAST3ROUTE meeting and appealed to Minister Carvalho Muaria, the Mozambique Minister responsible for Tourism to include that very famous singer in Mozambique’s delegation to the Carnaval International de Victoria.

Mozambique float will feature the Mozambique cultural mosaic, a mix from traditional African culture, Arab and Portuguese influences. Therefore, its archipelagos contain stories and legends that are still respected from generation to generation. But its charm comes not only from its exotic places, landscapes or environment of their cities, but a contrast in the land and the people who are born and live with passion and intensity.
