Before finding a mouthpiece in television, radio broadcasts and through the written word, folklore in Seychelles relied on oral tradition for its dissemination.

Over the years, it has traditionally revolved around certain familiar characters such as ’Soungula’, renowned for his cleverness and resourcefulness in solving life’s problems as well as other colourful personalities such as ‘Frer Zako’, ‘Kader’, ‘Ti Zan’, and ‘Kousoupa.’

Certain popular fables and stories still do the rounds, dating back to those days before television when there was little in the way of popular entertainment and these remain mediums for providing an audience with insights as to the correct way to live, island-style.
