Seychelles-TravelSeychelles is getting its first taste of a Spanish intercultural week dubbed “Viva Seychelles y Viva España’’. It is Mason’s Travel that are standing behind this first edition of the Spanish intercultural week with “La Tuna”, the famous Spanish Traditional Band of International recognition. The band which plays and sings Latin melodies and rhythms such as rumbas, flamencos and tangos expectsto rhythm of Spanish music out on the street of Seychelles.

The best part of “Viva Seychelles y Viva España’’ planned between 11th – 20th April, is not only the cha-cha dancing and the famous Spanish “tapas’’, but the official opening performance of “La Tuna” on 11th is organised in the garden of National Cultural Centre especially for the island’s children living in orphanages.

There will also be cultural exchanges at the Beau Vallon Bazar Labrine on the 16th April and a cultural performance at Eden Island on the following day. The Ministry of Tourism and Culture congratulated Mason’s Travel for the initiative to host this event. Alain St.Ange, the Minister for Tourism and Culture said “Viva Seychelles y Viva España’’ is a new departure for cultural exchanges between Seychelles and Spanish communities. “It’s a good initiative by Mason’s Travel. Using culture to market Seychelles as a relevant tourism destination is clearly the way forward. Mason’s Travel, as a Destination Management Company who are working hard on the Spanish market have realised that it is a profitable market, but also that it can be even more profitable if Seychelles was visible. This is why Mason’s Travel initiated the Spanish intercultural week’’

Latest statistic show that visitor arrivals from Spain is gradually increasing in numbers. In 2013 Seychelles recorded 2,481 visitors from Spain. Minister St.Ange said “Viva Seychelles y Viva España’’ will help to boost our visibility as a tourism destination in Spain. Iñaki Fernández, Mason’s Travel Sales Manager explained that this intercultural event will help to bring both the Seychellois and Spanish communities together.

“We’re bringing a popular traditional band to Seychelles to share Spanish culture with the people of Seychelles. La Tuna is known to play its part in social responsibility by giving cultural performances not only in marriages, but they also stage performances in hospitals. Through their music the people of Seychelles will be able to appreciate our Spanish culture’’

The Ministry of Tourism and Culture and Mason’s Travel have said that “Viva Seychelles y Viva España” is an inter cultural week that is a perfect example where culture and tourism can work together”.
