|WOMAD Sri Lanka 2005 ::: Sri Lanka's Festival of World of Music and Drums Photos|
|The show in Kandy was a surprise to me, as I arrived
in the sceane there were only few flags and few people sitting on
the lawn, there were not lights, no sound setups, I wondered how
were going to hear, The show started late accommodating time and
crowed for a maiden musical performance by a university student
happening in Sarathchadra Pit (open air coliseum theatre)...
Crowed gathered slowly by the time show started there were about 100 people. Dohl foundation was first to play, they captured the hearts of youngsters with Bangra style drumming, Soon there were over 2000 people, all university students must have waken up by the sound of drums, although the lamps gave only a little light, it made a surrounding ready for a real acoustic show. The crowed cheered, clapped, danced and wanted more from Dohl foundation. At the end Dohl foundation had to moved to bring next show in :) .. it was really a fun act ...
Then came Yelemba D'Abidjan of West Africa marching with their war drums, They continued to capture the hearts of crowed, the crowed was gathered around all sides of stage except back. The closest people were sitting and their was only a little room for the photographers, we had to crawl ... It was another great display of great drumming by Yelemba
