PostSubject: Music of Seychelles   Fri Nov 12, 2010 12:55 am

Seychellois society is essentially matriarchal.[13][14] Mothers tend to be dominant in the household, controlling most current expenditures and looking after the interests of the children.[13] Unwed mothers are the societal norm, and the law requires fathers to support their children.[14] Men are important for their earning ability, but their domestic role is relatively peripheral.[13] Older women can usually count on financial support from family members living at home or contributions from the earnings of grown children.[13]

The music of Seychelles is diverse. The folk music of the islands incorporates multiple influences in a syncretic fashion, including European contredanse, polka and mazurka, French folk and pop, sega from Mauritius and RĂ©union, taarab, soukous and other pan-African genres, and Polynesian, Indian and Arcadian music.[citation needed] A complex form of percussion music called contombley is popular, as is Moutya, a fusion of native folk rhythms with Kenyan benga.

Traditionally, despite a greater connection with Great Britain (e.g., in education, which follows the International General Certificate of Education (IGCSE), and on many aspects of the law) many foreign observers[who?] have stated that "the culture remains emphatically French" and about 70% of the population have a family name of French origin, compared with only about 20% family names of English origin.[citation needed] The two are often mixed, such that inhabitants receive an English first name and a French family name or vice-versa (e.g., Jean-Pierre Kingsmith).
