Sega, folk dance of Mauritius

  • A beautiful Sega the folk dance of Mauritius. Sega was originally the “soul dance” of exiled African slaves in Mauritius. Sega is a combination of dancing and singing, a courtship drama “described as ‘symbolic wooing.' The instruments that accompany traditional Sega are relatively simple: goatskin drums with bells on them, coconut shells or wooden boxes with dried seeds inside, metal triangles and cooking pots and utensils. The dance is performed by both men and women. It begins as a group dance then the dancers separate into partners. It is a dance full of sexual tension but the dancers rarely touch each other.
    Mauritius is an island of Africa's southeast coast located in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar.
