Ras Ceylon – Heal Lanka

Ras Ceylon

This post war anthem is not the regular deal you’d hear. Not to be confused with some sugary appeal for peace, the song’s strong, political questioning lyrical content makes it an anthem for an age of Sri Lanka that wants to move forward and make “that change”. For a song that was released in 2011 originally, the newer version is not too different in fact is a lot less raw.

Rated 5 out of 5
