Final rehearsals for the Seychelles Ministry of Tourism and Culture’s Carnival float

Final rehearsals for the Seychelles Ministry of Tourism and Culture’s Carnival float ( The staffs at the Ministry of Tourism and Culture have been inspired by Seychelles’ traditional musical instruments for the upcoming Carnaval International de Victoria.

The musical instruments will played by some fifty staff members of the Seychelles Tourism Board and those from the Department of Culture. It was very apparent at the rehearsal on Tuesday in the ICCS Conference Center Car Park that the staffs of the Ministry are hyped up to join the carnival float for the three days when Seychelles welcomes the world to its shores. The staffs of the Ministry have said that they feel proud to be part of the fun-loving people of the world and that they will be swinging their way through the streets of Victoria during the Carnival Parade on February 9.

Preparations for the anticipated Carnival float have been in place for weeks already and final rehearsals kicked off Tuesday, January 8, at the International Conference Centre, spearheaded by traditional dance instructor Marietta Matombe from the Ministry’s National Troupe and Miera Savy, Director of International Cooperation.
The staff of the Tourism Board said that nothing could overcome the buzz while watching their carnival float parading with other carnival goers in 2012. For this 2013 edition, the Seychelles Tourism Board is merging with workers of the Culture Department to prepare for one of its biggest-ever carnival floats.

These final days are seeing the rehearsal where the carnival team will let the sounds of the instrumental music bring out the rhythm in them. Not only will they be learning the steps, but the most challenging part will be to attain the full swing of the rehearsal by tuning their traditional instruments to the upbeat of the songs arrangement, ensuring a flawless delivery on the big day.

Dancers and choreographer are prepared to sweat it out while a consume designer was on hand to ensure the dancers are perfectly fitted in their role. The Seychelles Tourism and Culture carnival float will join the over twenty confirmed local float for the parade. In the meantime, the Seychelles Tourism Board is waiting for confirmation from other local companies already registered and who are ready to showcase their company as supporters of the carnival.

Mr. Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, accompanied by Ms. Benjamine Rose, his Principle Secretary for Culture; Ms. Jenifer Sinon, the Administration and HR Manager at the Tourism Board; and Mrs. Raymonde Onezime, the Minister’s Special Advisor, were at the ICCS Conference Center Carpark to see for themselves the final preparations by their team members for the biggest popular event organized in Seychelles.

Minister St.Ange said after he left the rehearsals that he was happy to see the enthusiasm of the Ministry’s team members to be part of the coming carnival. “Seychelles is the host country; we have a duty to come out and show our commitment to the event that has helped us increase our country’s visibility in the four corners of the world. Participating adds to the color of the carnival, and it helps develop unity amongst company’s team members and amongst ourselves, the people of Seychelles,” Minister Alain St.Ange said.
