Traditionally, in Seychelles, Moutia dance is accompanied by the improvised songs. It consists of a gathering at night in the open air around a bonfire made out of coconut leaves. As the drums were warmed, the male members of the crowd call out various ‘themes’ to which the female dancers responded with very high-pitched voices. Read more about Seychelles traditional Music
