Garrett Field on “The Sinhala Radio Opera and the Indian Cultural Imagination” (

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:”
