Summary
On Thursday 29th January 2009, Tissa Abeysekara, a Trustee of the National Trust-Sri Lanka, made a seminal presentation on the heritage of Sinhala music. In a remarkable production, combining the immediacy of live performance with the depth of his incomparable knowledge, Tissa traced the evolution of this musical heritage from the simple beauty of its folk roots to the richness that grew from the absorption of other great traditions and styles. This DVD is a re-creation of that event, using the voice recording of his lecture, and the performances of almost all the artists who graced his stage on that day
