'INDIAN OCEAN SEGAS FROM THE 70'S' - In the 17th century slaves
were deported from Africa, Madagascar to the pristine
islands of Mauritius, Réunion and the Seychelles in the South
Western corner of the Indian Ocean to work on coffee and sugar
cane plantations where they gathered secretly to escape their
daily woes by singing, dancing and beating rhythms. Afro-
Malagasy-inspired sega, or (t)chega music was born. During the
course of the 19th century, the Creole population's gradual
adoption of Western instruments and traditional melodies of old
Europe (quadrille, waltz, polka, schottische, romance, mazurka)
together with the cultural impact of hired workers from India,
laid the foundation for contemporary sega. These crossroads of
influences kept expanding, especially in the '50s, when the
first gramophones hit the market and all sorts of records were
played, from pop to jazz, soul, rock and roll, and even Cuban
and Brazilian music. For sega music, this hailed the beginning
of an intense period of creativity which would linger on into
the '60s and '70s when amplified instruments appeared and
violins and accordions were replaced by electric guitars, bass
guitars, drums and keyboards. Psychedelic keyboards, fuzz
guitars and bouncy bass lines came to complement the
manic ternary polyrhythms of drums, ravannes, bongos, claves,
triangles and maracas, and created a unique style. FolkWelt and
Bongo Joe Records have carefully selected and compiled some
gems from this golden age of sega from Mauritius, the
Seychelles and Réunion. If you liked Alain Peters you gonna
love this!
