Seychelles veteran singers John Wirtz and Georges Payet present carnival 2013 organizers with a carnival song

Seychelles veteran singers John Wirtz and Georges Payet present carnival 2013 organizers with a carnival song ( The remake of John Wirtz’s populous 1976 Seychelles Independence song, now with a carnival theme, has been presented to Tourism Minister Alain St.Ange and Tourism Board CEO Elsia Grandcourt in a small ceremony at the Ministry of Tourism&Culture at the National Cultural Centre.

It is two veteran singers John Wirtz and Georges Payet who worked on the adaption of the song featuring flowery carnival lyrics with a spice of modern music arrangement. The song has kept its traditional original beats of 1976.

The producer of the song, Georges Payet, said that “the original version of the song was so magical that it impacted on the generations of the 1970s. The new generation on the other hand did not have the opportunity to feel this magic. The remake of the carnival song is a good way to put into good use one of Seychelles’ best tracks of 1976,” said Georges Payet. On his part, John Wirtz said that “this song is for Seychelles and would help to bring a new boost to this worldwide manifestation.”

Accepting the master copy of the latest carnival song, the Minister for Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange, thanked John Wirtz, George Payet, and the children’s choir “for adding a new flair in the production of this carnival song.”

The Minister stated that this kind of partnership is highly recommended between artists and Ministry of Tourism and Culture.

The Chief Executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board, Elsia Grandcourt, has also extended her words of thanks to John Wirtz Georges Payet and the children’s choir.

She said that she appreciates the enthusiasm by performing artist and appreciates their contributions for the coming carnival.

The new song of John Wirtz and Georges Payet will be played during the carnival’s official opening and aired on all broadcasting medium during the carnival. The presentation of the carnival’s official song took place in the presence of the Special Advisor to the Minister, Raymonde Onezime, and the Director General for Culture, Marcel Rosalie, and Mrs. John Wirtz.

The Tourism Board will be putting the new carnival song by John Wirtz and Georges Payet on sale by the weekend.
