Colombo, Colombo, LK
Bio: It has been over three years since I first envisioned a jazz,fusion,blues,world, festival in Colombo city to specially support SRILANKAN musician to get to the international arena of the genre.. Traveling the globe as a professional musician, I’d had the great privilege of performing at few of the greatest festivals and exotic locations in the world, and it seemed to me at that moment that Colombo was equally beautiful – and worthy of its’ own major music event with its own artist along with international artist. The obvious obstacle was the economy… and I knew well that it wouldn’t be easy: .Now we need help........!!. While in the process of bringing on sponsors and strategic partners to “pay the bills” we need help..........from musicians in the world! SL Urban music Co-oparation is non-profit,nongovernment organization, which will be important not only for Colombo,but for the whole country.that plans on inviting all musicians - in the roots of improvised music to perform at a festival that proposes furious rhythms everywhere, for all with more than 10 concerts distributed on 4 stages looking to draw a crowd that seeks unique artistic concepts with not less than 20 performers taking turns during 3 days. The performing acts have included a cross section of diverse jazz,blues,fusion,oriental-influenced artists from across the jazz/blues diaspora. Through this festival we will leave an impression..Performers of all kinds of improvised music will engadge in concerts, preserved side programs, workshops, expositions and other alternative programs, with lots of press conferences while audiences will receive satisfaction to their musical,educational and culinary needs. With this first Festival we are hoping to place ourselves in the international calendar of events.
