    Danse Sega

    Sega

    The Sega, traditional music of the island, is at the time born of the slavery. It is a rhythmic and bewitching music to the sound of the ravanne (big flat tambourine in skin of kid), of the triangle and the maravanne (large limps in stem of duck to sugar, full of seed).

    The public concerts of Sega always attract an important crowd.

    Even though it is not anymore the big feasts 'kiltireles' of the 80's that attracted some spectators by thousand.

    De nos jours il ne reste plus de Beau-Bassin/Rose-Hill que quelques-unes unes de ces luxueuses propriétés.
    Néanmoins, le fait qu’elle soit la plus grande ville résidentielle peuplée de toutes races et ethnies, et surtout de métisses, de tous niveaux sociaux que nous pouvons qualifier de «vrais» Mauriciens, ajoute à son charme.
    Rose-Hill regorge de petites boutiques surprenantes, visitées par tous et surtout par les jeunes, et il serait tentant de dire que l’Ile Maurice de demain y est en train d’immerger.

    Today, Beau-Bassin / Rose-Hill is just another busy town of Mauritius with very few of these luxuriant properties.
    However, it takes its charm from being by far the largest residential town of Mauritius inhabited by all races and ethnics, but especially by those of mixed backgrounds, which we can qualify as the true Mauritians. Rose-Hill is full of funny shops, visited by all, especially the young ones, and is probably where the new Mauritius is being nurtured.

    avadee in Rose-Hill

    De toutes les fêtes que célèbrent les Tamouls de l'Ile Maurice, le Cavadee est la plus populaire, mais aussi la plus spectaculaire.
    La foule des grands jours, une foule compacte, colorée et bariolée, va accompagner les pèlerins durant toute la journée, dans une chaleur torride, sous un soleil de plomb.

    Of all feasts that celebrate the Tamils of Mauritius, the Cavadee is the most popular, but also the most spectacular.
    The big day crowd, a compact, colorful and gaudy crowd, is going to come with the pilgrims during all day, in a torrid heat, under a sun of lead.

    Kaya et Racinetatane

    Kaya et Racinetatane

    Le reggae jamaïcain s'est implanté durablement à l'île Maurice au début des années 80.
    Des clones de Marley fleurissent avec les adeptes du rastafarisme. Parmi les noms du reggae mauricien, Lelou Ménoir est l'un des plus en vue. Son guitariste, Joseph Réginald Topize, dit Kaya, va bientôt trouver la clé d'un son plus spécifique aux îles soeurs. En un compromis subtil, il parvient à marier les rythmes ternaire du séga et binaire du reggae, inventant le seggae. À la fin des années 80, un formidable engouement pour ce nouveau style s'empare des Mascareignes, entraînant une sorte de génération spontanée de jeunes groupes à Maurice comme à la Réunion. Le 14 mars 1990, Racitatane reçoit l'ovation de 42 000 spectateurs au stade de Rose Hill, dans cette île d'un peu plus de 1,1 millions d'habitants. Kaya surfe sur la vague, enregistre deux albums, La Paix Universelle en 1991 et Seggae Man en 1992. La qualité est là avec un excellent groupe, de bonnes chansons et un fort potentiel international.

    Jamaican reggae settled for good in Mauritius in the early 1980s.
    Bob Marley clones abounded among rastafarian followers. Lelou Ménoir is one of the foremost names in Mauritian reggae. His guitarist, Joseph Réginald Topize, known as Kaya, would soon find the key to a sound more specific to the sister islands. Using a subtle compromise, he managed to combine the ternary rhythms of séga and the binary rhythms of reggae to invent seggae. In the later 80s, the Mascarene islanders were seized by wildly enthusiastic about this new style, which created a spontaneous generation of young groups both in Mauritius and Réunion Island. On 14th March 1990, Racitatane was given a 42,000-strong ovation at the Rose Hill stadium, on this island of just over 1.1 million inhabitants. Kaya rode on the crest of the wave, recording two albums, La Paix Universelle in 1991 and Seggae Man in 1992. Quality is the watchword with this excellent group, great songs and high international potential.

    The new Plaza Theatre

    Rose-Hill - The Plaza theatre

    Major renovation works started in 1979, financed jointly by the Mauritian and French Governments. The new theatre was inaugurated in 1983, in presence of the French Ambassador. Late Mr Serge Constantin was responsible for stage designing at the Plaza theatre for about half a century until his death in 1998. As such, he has been closely associated with all the major activities which took place in this theatre and was even known as the ‘soul’ of the theatre.
