Wow, now that’s an amazing photo. Serge is definitely in margaritaville.
I’m going to devote the last post in this Mauritius series to Serge Lebrasse. Once again this music comes from the collection of Benn loxo listener, DR. Thanks again, DR, for all the music.
Serge Lebrasse brings us, in DR’s words, “standard hotel entertainment sega, made charming by the passage of the years and an extremely competent band.” He also has an amazing collection of colourful shirts.. just Google Images the guy if you don’t believe me.
I positively love the first track you’ll hear today, Maurice Mo Pays. The second is more of that “standard sega” sound, albeit in an old school way that gives it a nice feel. Makes me want to blend-up a daiquiri. Maybe I will…
The last track, Cyclone Carol, is based on real events – Carol was the worst weather ever to hit the island.
ps- Before we sign-off Mauritius Week #2 I’d like to give a shout-out to Caroline, without whom DR never would have traveled to Mauritius. We can thank her by extension for much of the great music we’ve heard this week!mauritius, sega
