A taste of culture

Every Monday, Nuga Gama, ‘the village in the city’, at Cinnamon Grand hosts a cultural evening with the Shilpa Ranga Cultural Dance Troupe showcasing the rich heritage of Sri Lanka’s performing arts as they depict village folktales, myths and traditions through dance.

They will perform at the kamatha, a locale used primarily as a threshing floor and also as a stage for Sokari, a drama usually held after the harvest.

“When Nuga Gama was first conceptualized, promotions of this nature were at the forefront of our plans,” said General Manager Rohan Karr.

The Shilpa Ranga Cultural Dance Troupe has always been led by generations of the Amunugama Werapitiya family who have watched the art evolve through their years of service to the Dalada perahara; duties which they continue to perform to this very day. Entrance is free.
