Coulouce – Beau Pere (Mauritius, 1971, Damoo)

Jean-Pierre Mohabeer was a Mauritian singer, one of the legends of the Sega (an important musical genre from the Indian Ocean).

He renamed himself “Coulouce” in the 60s to make his debuts as an amateur singer in the “Baie du Tombeau” region on the island of Mauritius, where he worked as a waiter in a hotel.

Street singer, he met on the road other musicians, with whom he formed at the begining of the 70s his first Orchestra, “Los Creolos“, to animate bals, dancings and weddings. With this Orchestra, he recorded his first singles (Sega Goblet, Angela, Soul Sega) that quickly became great hits on the island.

The divorce with his wife will be the beginning of his fall. He began to drink, and went for oblivion deep in glasses. A descent into hell in the bars, until his meeting with Anecy who became his second wife and helped him up the slope.

In 1992, he made an astonishing comeback with the K7 “Coulouce vine encore“, followed by another in 1994, “Séga socolat“. At the same time, he recorded the CD “Sega seggae” and the album “Coulouce” in 1994.

The singer, who then fell back into oblivion, died a few years ago, on February 2005.

For today, I wanted to share with you “Beau Pere“, a psychedelic Soul Sega track recorded in 1971, one of Coulouce’s biggest hits – Enjoy !
