By Sanath Weerasuriya

As a student of Holy Cross College, Gampaha, she was a keen music fan, took part in a number of mucical programmes during her school days. Rehana said her biggest influence in career as singer is her father.

'My father is a musician and he played in several popular bands and outfits. He always encourages me on my singing career' she said. 'Monte Carlo' is based in Dubai and they play on regular contract at popular Sri Lankan venue 'Panorama'.

Though 'Monte Carlo' is a calypso band we are very popular in Dubai. Not only Sri Lankan community, but Indians and other Asian fans do visit to watch us performing' she explained. She will be back in action in Dubai again from next Saturday after a short vacation in Colombo.
