I are happy to share this transcript of an informative lecture on modern Sinhala music by Garrett Field. It was publsihed this week and last in « The Island. » The drawback for those of us who can only read the lecture as printed in « The Island » is that we cannot hear the samples of music that were part of the lecture and which are mentioned in it.
The lecture here can be found on the website of « The Island: »
