Thousands experienced the exotic and vibrant culture from this beautiful and ethnically-diverse island off the south coast of Africa. We reveled in the sound of Mauritius with live Sega artists and bands such as Velex Mizika, Sky To Be, Jason Heerah, Lin, Otentik Groove Band and Alain Narainsamy. Headlining this year’s festival were Alain Ramanisum, Laura Beg and their band Ravana Roots – playing their worldwide hit ‘Li tourner’, featuring DJ Assad.
Mauritius is known for its amazing street food. the fesitval offered a taste of some of the best dishes from the island, such as dhal pouri, an Indian style flatbread stuffed with ground yellow split peas, and gajaks, deep fried snacks like potato fritters and samosas, at one of the festivals many eateries and bars, washed down with a cold glass of award-winning Mauritian lager. We even spotted Masterchef 2012 winner Shelina Permalloo cooking up a storm – her restaurant was sponsoring the festival.
