"Danse Sega" Mauritius Local Custom Tip by Klod5

Mauritius Local Customs: 27 reviews and 23 photos

by Klod5

The Sega, traditional music of the island, is at the time born of the slavery. It is a rhythmic and bewitching music to the sound of the ravanne (big flat tambourine in skin of kid), of the triangle and the maravanne (large limps in stem of duck to sugar, full of seed).

The public concerts of Sega always attract an important crowd.

Even though it is not anymore the big feasts 'kiltireles' of the 80's that attracted some spectators by thousand.
