I have some very interesting news for everyone who is reading this at kottu. We had a moment of Sri Lankan pride last night when Ranidu successfully had his pre-launch party for his 3rd album at Sutra Lounge in the East Village here in New York. This is the first time that a Sri Lankan artist has been able to penetrate such an audience and everyone loved it.
Many people there could not understand the lyrics but they were all feeling the music and the dance floor was packed. His 3rd album labeled “Ranidu” releases in march officially in Sri Lanka. Enjoy some of these video’s that I snapped off my camera.The first one is Ranidu being introduced to the crowds at Sutra and the other is his message to all Sri Lankans and all music lovers all over.
