AllMusic Review by

The Seychelles are an island group located off the east coast of Africa, just north of Madagascar. This collection starts out with singers accompanied by only guitar, but by the end of the disc the sound is a bit fuller, with bass and percussion joining the mix. Like much of the music from Madagascar, the music of the Seychelles has a cheerful, upbeat quality that shines through the sometimes less-than-perfect sound (the material here was recorded between the mid-'60s and mid-'70s). This is another fine release of traditional music from the dependable "Music of the World" series.
