Day 2: Folklore extravaganza in the North
Jaffna Music Festival 2011 is initiated through the Norway-Sri Lanka Music Cooperation agreement in partnership with The United States Agency for International Development (USAID). In this collaborative effort, Sewalanka Foundation is organizing the event, with the guidance of Aru Sri Theatre and support from Concerts Norway.
"Jaffna Music Fesitival will provide a forum for folk musicians, who have at times struggled to engage in and preserve these art forms and an opportunity to exchange traditions with other performers and festival-goers from across Sri Lanka", said a U.S. Embassy Press Release marking the delightful celebration.
