The most typical dance of Mauritius is Sega dance. Originally it was an only entertainment for African slaves. The music was played with any available instrument. Usually it was a goat skin drum, the ravanne, the maravanne or a triangle. Before men used to sing and women used to dance. Nowadays people both sing and dance irrespectively of gender.
