La Digue Board buys song’s copyright for tourist information website


La Digue mon ankor kontan ou, one of Joe Samy’s most popular Creole creations, will be the theme music for the new website to help travellers who plan to visit the island.

The song has a French version entitled La Digue, mon île je t’aimerais toujours. A member of the board said that there was a preference for the original Creole version, which defines the distinctive aspects of the island.

The website, which will be launched soon, will give easy access to information on all types of accommodations, dining facilities, excursions, transportation and other useful information on La Digue.

The chairman of the board is René Morel and Gretel Quatre is the treasurer. The other members are Barbara Barallon, Chantale Ghislain, Gregoire Payet, Alain de Commarmond, Gerard Lablache, Lenny Lablache, Marie-Cecile Fanchette and Robert Pool.
The designer of the website is Perrin Pierre.
