Seychellois artist Joe Sammy
Veteran, well-known Seychellois artist Joe Sammy, famously known for his collection of patriotic songs about his native islands, Seychelles, used the platform of the Air Seychelles launch flight workshop to mark his comeback to the music scene.

The workshop was hosted by Air Seychelles with the Seychelles Tourism Board and local trade partners namely Select Seychelles, Creole Travel Services, Sainte Anne Beachcomber Resort, Raffles Seychelles, 7South, Masons Travel and Seychelles Connect.

After over 20 years since the release of an album, Joe Sammy has worked on a new collection of songs with lyrics describing the beauty of the islands, the people, culture and the diversity that the destination has to offer. Joe Sammy was a guest artist at the workshop in Hong Kong strumming away his guitar to the Hong Kong tour operators during the lunch break and the small cocktail reception held at the end of the event.

Joe Sammy's new collection will soon hit the local market and is set to capture his fans and visitors alike with the sounds of his acoustic guitar and harmonica. The crowd at the reception took to the rhythms of our local sega music whilst savouring signature cocktails made with the locally produced Takamaka Bay rhum sponsored specially for the event by Trois Freres Distillery Seychelles.

The workshop ended on a high note with all partners involved confident that this new step of an Air Seychelles flight launch will be an added boost to the China market.
