Seychelles “Viva Seychelles y Viva Espana” intercultural week to boost the country`s visibility in Spain

Seychelles “Viva Seychelles y Viva Espana” intercultural week to boost the country`s visibility in Spain ( Seychelles is getting its first taste of a Spanish intercultural week dubbed “Viva Seychelles y Viva Espana.” It is Mason`s Travel that is 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 expects to send the rhythm of Spanish music out into the street of Seychelles.

The best part of “Viva Seychelles y Viva Espana” is planned for April 11-20 when not only cha-cha dancing and the famous Spanish “tapas” will be offered, but when it will also be the official opening performance of “La Tuna” on April 11 which is being organized to take place in the garden of the National Cultural Centre especially for the island`s children that are living in orphanages.

There will also be cultural exchanges at the Beau Vallon Bazar Labrine on April 16 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 Espana” 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 is working hard on the Spanish market, has realized that it is a profitable market, but also that it can be even more profitable if Seychelles is visible. This is why Mason`s Travel initiated the Spanish intercultural week,” Minister St.Ange said.

The latest statistics show that visitor arrivals from Spain are gradually increasing in numbers. In 2013, Seychelles recorded 2,481 visitors from Spain. Minister St.Ange said “Viva Seychelles y Viva Espana” will help to boost its visibility as a tourism destination in Spain. Inaki Fernandez, Sales Manager for Mason`s Travel, 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 Sales Manager said.

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