Dances from the island of Reunion. The traditional music is Sega des Mascarene Islands (Reunion Island Mauritius et) and stems from the slaves brought from different countries (Africa, India, etc..) By European settlers. It can be considered an evolution of the Traditional Music of Mauritius and the music of the Reunion with European dance music like polka and quadrille. It closely resembles the Maloya, traditional dance Reunion Island. In its modern forms, has been combined with other genres such as jazz and reggae. This music emerged, like many others, oppression, sadness and suffering, and the need to externalize feelings this music was born when slaves gathered around bonfires. The Sega evolved out of the culture of the western Indian Ocean islands, as a fusion of European and African elements in the middle of the eighteenth century. Some Folk instruments employed in this genus are hand drum (moutia), the triangle rattle maravane, bobre ravanne and bow. The traditional musical form was heavily improvised and intensely emotional. Some authors cite this genre as coming specifically from Rodrigues Island. In this type of music predominantly African rhythm, and not so predominance of other musical influences, but it is always sung in Creole, the language of the people. (There Segas translated and sung in other languages??, but that is not the authentic Sega). There are two major types of "Sega", most are melodies with bright colors and fun things speak, always using two-way vocabulary. But there are also Segas that speak of the suffering and sorrow suffered by enslaved people.
