USA confirms Lisa Haley & the Zydekats will also perform in the 2014 edition of the Carnival International de Victoria in Seychelles

USA confirms Lisa Haley & the Zydekats will also perform in the 2014 edition of the Carnival International de Victoria in Seychelles ( Lisa 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 Carnaval International de Victoria as an entertainment band and a carnival float flying the USA`s flag. After the country&western group from America, this group from Louisiana will be the second delegation from 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 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 bandwagon because of the United States federal shutdown. It`s the American Embassy in Mauritius, also responsible for Seychelles who is 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 perform what 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 the 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 was heading to the 2014 carnival and that he is pleased with 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 is encouraging. More and more countries are jumping on 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.
