What a wonderful time I had at World Culture Bazaar's monthly event celebrating art & culture. This month attendees learned about the culture of Sri Lanka. Special guests spoke on the history, traditions, art, politics and we even feasted on a few signature treats. My contribution to the event was performing the Sri Lankan national anthem. I first heard it 2 weeks ago at an event and felt compelled to learn it as the sweet melody was stuck in my head.
At the end of the evening, we toasted (non alcoholic) to a prosperous Sinhalese New Year! Suba aluth avuruddak vewa! (Happy New Year)
