Behind the theme song is a team of well known local artists.
Jean Marc Volcy received the honour to work on a theme song for the event.

“The aim was to come up with a song that will have a great impact on people, create the festive ambiance and keep people on their toes,” Jean Marc told Nation earlier this week.

He said the lyrics and the music were his own creations.
Having decided how the song was going to be, Jean Marc chose the  four supporting artists -- Jany De Letourdie, Michelle Marengo, Antoinette Dodin and Brian Matombe -- to accompany him in the song which is entitled Sa Karnaval.

“I started work on the song around October last year and I am very happy with the end result,” he said.

But how did he choose the artists to support him?
Jean Marc said this has been easy because he knows these artists and their kind of music very well.
He said they are easy to work with and they share the same aim, which is promoting our culture and patriotism.

Noting that the song is the result of the excellent collaboration between them, Jean Marc said the feedback so far has been great, something he believes will make all the people proud come carnival time.

Jean Marc has meanwhile expressed his sincere thanks to the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) for providing him with the opportunity to produce the song, the artists for their great collaboration, Tony Julie and his musicians for their support, the Metis band for providing backing vocals and all Seychellois for their support. 

Besides Jean Marc, Angelika has also launched a new song for this year’s carnival entitled Carnival Party which is gaining popularity on the airwaves.
