Sasha Perera is a Sri Lankan who’s settled in Germany, started an art-house band, and is returning this month (the 25th) for a concert. My friend Jan has been hyping her up for years, playing her bass-heavy dubstep, experimetronic records and getting me to listen. I’ve seen some of the videos and it should definitely be a great live performance.
This is the season when people come down to Sri Lanka, both tourists and expats. There’s a Jay Sean concert on the 19th, shudder, and I think two music festivals (Sunset and Electric Peacock) on the same day in November. I think the Sunset chaps are bringing down Avicii, a DJ I actually like.
It’s not a bad month, and after some hiccups, Sri Lanka is finally get back on the international and India music circuit, with artists stopping by in the course of world tours.
The Jahcoozi concert is November 25th at La Voile Blanche, Mount Lavinia. Check out the Facebook event for deets.
