Music Day in Mauritius - The Local vibes Of The Island

Posted: 23/06/2017

For decades, in state schools across the island, Music Day has always been an exciting day. Days ahead, kids and youngsters would rehearse.

Songs are sung in Hindi, Urdu, Mandarin, French and English and added to that, ...the favourite of many, are sega songs, accompanied by the carrying traditional instruments, triangle, maravane and ravanne.

Local artists performed on Wednesday, in the streets of the Capital city, Port-Louis, during the day and in trendy places at sunset, which attracted diverse crowds. Cascavelle Mall (on the west coast) hosted a live performance show with amazing Mauritian artists Bruno JP, Indizenn, Ekzonez, Zilwala and French artist Nicolas Tarik. More artists joined in mirroring the rich multi-cultural community.


Sega, Ravanne, Maravane

Ravanne is a percussion instrument any music lover would love to bring home. It consists of a drumhead made of goatskin stretched on a circular wooden frame while the maravane is a rectangular shaker that looks like large thin flat box usually made out of bamboo and seeds.
