Mauritians, as many people appreciate tuning in to a wide range of music yet the conventional Mauritian music still has an impact in the Mauritian culture. The image of the island music culture is the Mauritian Sega which is a style of music and also a dance that that the slaves brought to the island.
The sega is typically sung in Creole; the mother-tongue of the Mauritians. The songs are usually overflowed by happiness and pain and accompanied by the conventional musical instruments- the ravanne, the maravanne and the triangle. Wearing long and beautiful skirts and tops ladies move shoeless swinging their hips and whatever is left of their bodies to the beat of the music.
During your stay in any of the hotels across the island, you will hear the sega songs and I am sure you will swing your hips to the beat of the music.
