Beach beats: Music in Mauritius
Mauritius has a rich history of music on the island including its traditional sega music and dancing which is mesmerising to watch, but you’ll also find a variety of other tunes to help you relax and enjoy your holiday.
Below we’ve rounded up some highlights from a few Mauritius hotels.
Four SeasonsMusic at Four Seasons Mauritius at Anahita is very venue-specific, so in O Bar the music has a contemporary, upbeat feel, whereas in Acquapazza, softer Italian music sets the scene for a dinner on the edge the lagoon, and in beachfront restaurant Bambou there is the chance to hear local Sega music during the day.
At Bambou, the hotel holds a weekly 'Zilwa Night' (Zilwa means 'of the island'). Guests can sample a variety of local cuisine from live cooking stations. During the evening, there is the chance to see a traditional Sega performance and high energy African dance show. Several times a week, guests can also enjoy the music of local band 'The Freestyle Jam'.
LUX* Resorts & HotelsLUX* Resorts & Hotels run a number of music events throughout the year with international DJs carefully selected in collaboration with Playlister (UK). The play-lists include famous DJ's like Femi Adeyemi (Founder of NTS radio), Tasker (88 Transition), Alex Nut (Eglo Records), and many creators of electronic music.
Expect to hear the best of Balearic beach house, inspired by Creole sounds, disco, soul and reggae. During these evenings, mostly starting at sunset, guests enjoy special menus prepared by the chefs. The complete calendar for the year is available on the website.
