Seychelles - A Place of Diversity

Seychellen - Im Meer der Farben

"United in diversityť may as well be the Seychelles' official motto. It has been adopted by the entire population as the basis for their peaceful coexistence and economic development. This group of islands proves that diversity is not necessarily a source of trouble but can also be an asset. It is not only valid for tourism. The biodiversity with its countless colours as well as the various cultures frame this documentary. More recently, this has been shown in music, dance and expressive arts. The cultures' catchy rhythms help us adjust to the waves, Turkish blue coasts, deserted beaches and romantic granite cliffs existing in the island world. According to the Seychellois, the islands' idyllic natural diversity with its tropical and maritime animal world is mirrored by their music and dances. They belong to creole culture, which, just like the creole language, has African and European influences.
