Sega Ile Maurice - Mauritius

The Sega : a world heritage

Met at the end of November in Paris, the UNESCO Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage inscribed the “sega typik” (i.e typical sega) of Mauritius on the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The sega is the name given to singing and ancestral dance from the era of slavery, and still practiced in Mauritius today.
The “sega tipik” becomes the third Mauritian entity, after Immigration Depot (landing slaves) and Le Morne Mountain (which served as a refuge for runaway slaves) to be considered as a World Heritage Site by Unesco.
