Ekanayaka: Adahas: Of Wings Of Roots
Tanya Ekanayaka is one of Sri Lanka’s foremost pianists and an internationally acclaimed composer. Her ‘deeply autobiographical’ piano compositions, or reinventions, introduce a novel and hybrid musical genre that takes a wide variety of Sri Lankan melodies—ancient, folk and popular—and blends them with motifs inspired by the tonal centres of established classical compositions by Bach, Beethoven, Ravel and others.
