    Congratulations to all those who received honours at this show.
    But I think that we should acknowledge E. O, Leblanc the advocate of our creole culture and the people of Penville/ Ville Vieille Case for the being the foruners of patois songs: Christmas, carnival and sewhenal and the people of Grandbay and Mahaut for taking it to a higher level.
    If anyone whish to write our musical history as an element of our culture, start at the beginning, from scratch. The beginners did not have the media or the technology of today, but in a lot of instances they made their own musical instruments. Sometimes they use stumping on wooden floors to keep the beat.
    So come on let us be free and fair.
