Sega

One of the most popular traditional dances on the Island Country is Sega, a dance that was originated in Africa. The music that goes with the dance is sang in Creole. The dance begins slowly with a solemn tune that picks up tempo and becomes more animated along the way.

Only three instruments are used to create the music, the ravanne, the maravanne, and the triangle, however, they are gradually being replaced with the modern orchestra ensemble. That notwithstanding, the coastal villages still stick to the traditional instruments.
