Galle Music Festival : Here’s What You Missed

Galle Music Festival : Here’s What You Missed

Couldn’t make it to the Galle Music Festival cuz of the weather or the Bradby match? Here’s what went down at the Samanala Grounds. The show started on time despite the  rains and moved in a really good pace, leaving no room for crowd boredom to settle in.

The Opening Act 

The 2nd Act – Pulikoothu was performed by an indigenous art performing group

Sorry we couldn’t capture the entire performance but here’s a bit more of ‘Pulikoothu’

The Sandasi Beat Drummers 

Karagam By Kalaimakal Kala Mantram

Kuda Mudal Kummi By Kalaimakal Kala Mantram

 Soul Sounds & The Sandasi Beat Drummers @ The Galle Music Festival 

The Calling: Kaveri Kala Manram,  Sandasi Beat Drummers and Soul Sounds

Voices : A collaborative performance by The University of Jaffna, University of Peradeniya and The Eastern University

Tahppu By Kaveri Kala Manram

Jasa Lenchina Mudali  By The Harishchandra Tukkawadu Kolam Drama Group

Karagam By The Kalaimakal Kala Mantram

This was also one of the fewer times that Sufi music was represented in a festival

Here’s part 2

Musicmatters Trans-Coastal Collective : a brilliance collaba between Musicmatters & the students from the Swani Vipulananda Institute of Aesthetic Studies.

And just before the headlining band, there were these names from the rap scene – Imaad Majeed, Shafni from Krema Diaz, Pamuditha Zen Anjana & OJ

Pamuditha Zen started off accapella

Part 2

Rapper OJ From Nuwara Eliya

They all collaborated on the final single

And finally, when the headlining band got on stage it sure was nothing short of fun & good times -thank you Raghu Dixit Project!
