Don’t Judge Me… Hear Me… Don’t Predict me… Understand me
This is what Sri Lankan-American, International Hip-Hop Star and Political Activist, DeLon, wants to share with you. He turned to music at an early age to find a home where his voice would be heard and where his thoughts would resonate. Faced with struggles typical of first-generation immigrant communities as they fight to assimilate, educate and empower themselves for individual and communal success, Hip-Hop struck a chord in DeLon on many levels. Being a minority and being marginalized was something DeLon quickly learned was not just his own struggle.
DeLon spent years honing his craft behind the scenes as a producer making sure other Artists’ voices were heard. Until one day, he knew it was time for the world to hear his voice, understand his journey and hopefully use his experiences to help pave the path for others in their struggles, as was done for him through the music DeLon was inspired by...
NOW… 3 albums later, all of which have hit #1 status in international markets, DeLon is ready to explode onto the Main Stage! DeLon has already opened for Lil Jon at Sundance 2012, was an official performer at SXSW 2012, has had 2 tracks on the Billboard chart (“Nasty Girl” and “Calor de la salsa”) and starred in the 2nd largest budgeted film in Sri Lanka!
On DeLon’s latest single, Body Rock, he has achieved 150k hits in less than 4 weeks and he has DJ’d arenas with over 5000 people. DeLon has also won at The Derana Music Video Awards in 2007 for Best Rap Performance, an event equivalent to the MTV Video Music Awards!
In addition to his musical successes, DeLon runs the Sri Lanka Foundation, which is committed to helping Sri Lankan communities worldwide and to share with people, internationally the cultural, artistic, philosophical and technical attributes of Sri Lanka. Through this platform he seeks to empower and inspire hope for improved lives and livelihoods for Sri Lankans and related communities worldwide.
DeLon is ready for you to hear his story, his passion, his conviction as he takes the World Stage by storm. If Akon and Will Smith engineered an act together, it would be DELON!
