collection at Torana
The latest to hit the market from Torana
is a mixed baggage. It's a heap of fun and variety including a karaoke
CD , a collection of songs ahead of Vesak festival, a couple of
movies and not excluding brand new bunch of songs from Sirasa Superstars.

starring heroine of the Sinhala cinema Malini Fonseka and Joe Abeywickreme
and a recent hit "Mille Soya" featuring

Sirasa Superstars are loved by all and when Torana
released a CD comprising brand new songs by four singers among those
who were selected to the final twenty members, it was certainly
the right decision at this time.
