Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Seychelles







Patrick Victor is one of the most renowned sega singer/guitarist from Seychelles, who over the past decades has made a significant contribution in shaping the music scene of the Indian Ocean islands nation. Bergitta Victor is his niece. She grew up with music in her life, her heart, & her soul. The root of all her music lies in the beauty & splendor of the Seychelles where she spent her childhood.


In 1993 Patrick was invited to appear with his Seychelles Sound & Dance Group at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival. At only age 11, Bergitta came along to Switzerland. There she discovered a new, dynamic world of music: jazz, soul, rhythm & blues, & pop music. She formed a band with some of her school friends. Soon Bergitta was singing at weddings, birthday celebrations, & even festivals. Not confining herself to singing, Bergitta was also writing her own songs.

She got jobs singing jingles, doing backing vocals for reggae & hip-hop bands, & because of her vocal stylings, to write & record her own tunes in the areas of chill house & trip-hop. Her personal musical style is a mixture of pop, soul, & jazz that she had come to love mixed with the world music style from the Seychelles.

Bergitta is young artist with a promising future.
