Biography:

A career officially started with a musical concert held somewhere in year 2000, with his colleague Indrachapa Liyanage, Kasun soon became a trendsetter in Sri Lankan music scene. During a time when Sri Lankan youth would dare to experiment or introduce new avenues in the field of music, Kasun and Indrachapa - who were mere school leavers, were brave enough to take the initiatives. Haritha Nimnaye, their first song made the duo popular, introducing a new era of music.

The popularity he gained from the first CD did not push this young musician to do any immediate new productions. His second album Radical Premaya released several years later introduced a 'totally different Kasun' to the music industry.

The CD, which he calls as an experiment, consisted 'songs with feelings'. According to Kasun, though the songs were not '100 per cent' successful, Radical Premaya has quenched his thirst to introduce novel creations to the industry. Now preparing for his third album, to be released early next year - Kasun feels it will be another unique experience for his listeners.
