Every Mauritian is brought up with the Sega dance. This dance specific to Mauritius, originated from the slaves brought from Africa. Dancing around the fire at the end of a hard day’s work was obviously their way to temporarily put aside the painful moments of their miserable existence. Today, Sega is the national dance heard everywhere and on every occasion for entertainment.

Traditional Sega is played with the basic instruments known as the ravanne, the maravanne, and the triangle.
