The ‘Storm’ hits Colombo
By Sanath Weerasuriya
'Storm', UK's leading Soca band delivering pulsating Caribbean rhythms is now in action in Sri Lanka. 'Storm' will perform at the popular 'Mix Bar' of the Taj Samudra Hotel till the end of this month.

The band was formed by S.W. Storm in 1998 and consists of top musicians from both the Caribbean and the UK. The frontline consists of Storm musicians plus two female backing vocalists/dancers and a lead singer. The musicians consist of two keyboard players, bass guitar, lead/rhythm guitar and drums.
'Only the frontline singers are in Colombo and they perform every night from Tuesday to Saturday from 8.00pm onward' said Anjali Karunaratne, the Commercial Sales Manager of the hotel.

The Storm will also come alive at the My Kind of Place for a special attraction.
Sina Wayane, the singer/songwriter also known as S.W.Storm, was born in London, England of Trinidadian Parentage. With his fusion of soca, flavoured with blends of R&B, Indian, Bhangra, Turkish, Reggae and Rock, Storm has developed a sound that is moving audiences worldwide. This artiste continues to go from strength to strength and can be found far and wide delivering powerful performances at festivals and concerts all over the world. Storm enjoys the benefit of performing with his own band 'Island Fury' but has also proved to be very effective with concert performances using his backing tracks.

Storm released his debut LP entitled 'Island Fury' in 1997 containing the hit 'Nice', which was released for the 1997 Trinidad & Tobago carnival season. Storm has since become a regular name on the 'Trinidad Carnival' diary each year, where he releases music and is found performing at many events.
Since his first release in 1997, Storm has been a consistent artiste spurning a number of hits over the years in many territories including Trinidad and Tobago.

After seven albums, three music videos and a number of singles all written and produced under his own label 'SWS Music', there will be no calm before or after this Storm.
