Kreol Festival in Seychelles closes as the popular Bal Asosye ends at 6 am last Saturday

Kreol Festival in Seychelles closes as the popular Bal Asosye ends at 6 am last Saturday ( Festival Kreol remains the event that rallies the Creole population from around the world to come together once a year to mark World Creole Day, now seen as their day set out by the United Nations.

This year it was no different as the Seychelles hosted the 29th edition of that Festival Kreol in what was seen as a festival that brought out everything Creole. Food, music, dancing, and above all, the Creole people themselves could be seen for the week-long festival. From Seychelles itself, and also from Mauritius and Rodrigues, from La Reunion and from the Caribbean Islands, they flew in to celebrate their attachment to the Creole culture.

The forums around everything Creole, to serenades in the streets of Victoria, to musical shows, to the opening of an art gallery, and even recognizing artists on a wall of fame - it was all happening during this 29th edition of the Festival Kreol in the Seychelles.

Seychelles is today known as being the “Capital of the World of Creoles” and has their Creole language as one of their three national languages. In Seychelles, the Creole language is taught in the schools. It is no wonder that the gathering of everyone Creole takes place in Seychelles for their annual Festival Kreol.

The closing ceremony of this year's event was again the popular Bal Asosye (big Creole Dance) that was this year hosted at the Reef Hotel. Some 900 plus revelers had gathered to hear Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister open the last event on the calendar of Festival Kreol 2014. The dance that opened at 7:00 pm was itself the event that closed the 2014 Festival at 6:00 am on Saturday morning. It was again Minister St.Ange who addressed the packed Reef Hotel at 6:00 am when he said, “It is now 6:00 am. We have all enjoyed the Bal Asosye and with a lot of satisfaction that the 2014 Festival Kreol was a total success, I declare the festival closed. I assure you all that the work for the 30th anniversary of our festival starts today. Festival Kreol 2015 will be bigger and even more fun," Minister St.Ange said as he closed the festival at 6:00 am last Saturday morning.
