Rub-a-dubbed-out, Sega inspired, downtempo- chillness has officially been released for tasting by half-Mauritian, UK based percussionist and singer, Mo Kolours in the form of Drum Talking EP. Backed by global beat detective, Gilles Peterson, the single “Biddies” is a wavy, chant-laced, earth tribute to the future; a sound reminiscent of a beachy ritual carried on until the  picturesque Mauritian sunrise.

Biddies

Sega, a music originally improvised for dance, dirges, and local religion by slave communities of Mauritius, Reunion, and Seychelles, is the product of European and African influences that eventually spread throughout the South West Indian Ocean and is now a popular genre. Sega, danced without the feet ever leaving the ground, can be seen in this old footage we came across for your viewing pleasure – view after the jump.
