Drums are an intrinsic part of Sri Lankan tradition and festivals. The Drum Festival is a celebration of drums & rhythms from the different regions of the country, culminating in a fusion finale to end the performance. Sri Lanka boasts a variety of distinct musical instruments like the ravanahatha—an ancient violin, which, according to folklore, was created by King Ravana—and several other musical instruments like the conch or hakgediya, the tambourine like pantheruwa and different types of drums. We will show case beats of 10 such current drums that are an integral part of our culture.
