Seychelles-TravelLisa Haley & the Zydekats will be offering the 2014 carnival in Seychelles a golden opportunity to discover Cajun and Zydeco music.

Lisa Haley and the Zydekats signed their participation in the 2014 edition of the Seychelles Carnival International de Victoria as an entertainment band and a carnival float flying the USA of America’s flag.

Lisa Haley & the ZydekatsAfter the Country & Western Group from the USA of America this group from Louisiana will be the second delegation for the USA in the 2014 edition of the mid-ocean carnival in the tropics which is this year being co-hosted by Seychelles, La Reunion, Madagascar, Mayotte and KwaZulu Natal South Africa.

Lisa Haley, fiddler player and Grammy Nominee agreed this time of the year, to make Seychelles, her group’s next tour stop. The American group from Louisiana was expected to perform in Seychelles for Festival Kreol 2013, but missed the band wagon because of United States Federal shutdown. It’s the American Embassy in Mauritius, also responsible for Seychelles who are sponsoring the group’s live performance at the 2014 edition of the carnival in Seychelles. A representative of the embassy said “The coming Carnival is the best time for the group to travel to Seychelles”. Lisa and the Zydekats is a four member team band. They performed what the Americans would agree is America’s Creole music. It is hence perfectly fitting for them to join the carnival’s melting pot of cultures and showcase their music. On a more serious note, the group will conduct a workshop for young musicians at Conservatoire of Performing Arts. So watch out for Lisa Haley and the Zydekats in the 2014 Carnival International de Victoria.

Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture said that he was overwhelmed when confirmation was received that a second group from the USA of America were heading to the 2014 carnival that the support being received from the Community of Nations for the unique carnival staged annually in Seychelles. “The annual meeting of nations in Seychelles by countries showcasing themselves through culture and in so doing through their very own people was encouraging. More and more countries are joining the bandwagon because the promotion of tourism destinations through culture is the way forward, as this is the only unique selling point that carries a different DNA of each tourism destination” Minister St.Ange said.
