This single features two of the greatest heroes of history of Mauritius island Sega music and announces the upcoming release of vol.2 of Soul Sega Sa! compilation. 

Unique character and overexcited singer Roland Fatime (also known as Ti L’Afrique) begins his career on the Mauritian scene in the early 70’s. Along with the group Features of Life, with Eric Nelson’s saturated electric guitar and Raoul Lacariate’s untamed rhythms; Fatime is going to spark a new raw, funky and explosive Séga style. His superb Séga-Blues lo-fi tune ‘Bal Souki Souki’ is reissued on this very 7” along with another nugget buried on the island. It’s ‘Soul Reggae Prisonnier’ by Ramone, Ti l’Afrique’s ex-rival! In the same blues and soul vein, this Séga immerses us in a dramatic story of judicial error and prison environment, which are unfortunately well too familiar with some Mauritian musicians!
