Seychellois popular musician and artist Mercenary performs in Rodrigues and Mauritius

Seychellois popular musician and artist Mercenary performs in Rodrigues and Mauritius ( Seychellois musician and artist “Mercenary” participated alongside local, regional, and international artists during the 2012 edition of the Mauritius Kreol Festivals of Rodrigues and Mauritius.

After the initial invitation from Rodgrigues, through bilateral corporation, the Seychelles Ministry for Tourism and Culture facilitated Mercenary’s trip to Rodgrigues to participate in the Festival, after which he was also invited by the Mauritian government to participate in the Mauritius Festival Kreol.

Mercenary was the only Seychellois artist performing in both festivals. He performed alongside famous artists such as Dominique Barret from Reunion island and Black Rod and Real Mystika from Rodrigues island in the Rodrigues festival, and alongside international artists such as Tairo from France and Sir Samuel from Martinique and several Mauritian artists such as Linzy Bacbotte, Casiya, and sega artists in the Mauritian Festival. Both performances were greatly appreciated by both audiences.

Mercenary describes his participation in both festivals as a good initiative, stating that it is always good when regional artists get together in a display of talents, something he says, will bring them popularity and recognition. His wish is to see continuity in such exchanges between Seychelles and other counties in a bid to promote Seychellois artists.

Both Mauritius and Rodrigues organizers were so impressed by his performances that they have requested copies of his CDs.

Mercenary was accompanied by Rod I Crew in the all night concert in Rodridgues and by Otantik Group in Mauritius. Seychellois artist Ras Ricky, currently residing in Mauritius, provided vocal backup during his Mauritius performance.

Koeny Raya, the organizer of Mauritius’ biggest annual regional reggae performance “Donn Sa” embodied all the artists in Mauritius.
