Soothing strains of music
By Dhananjani Silva

It is no ordinary music, but music designed to heal your pain; music that touches the core of your heart; mystic and harmonious…

Sala Nisala- an innovative music therapy programme with the objective of inspiring the human mind, is based on the principles of socio community music therapy to cater to those burdened with stress and anxiety.

Presented in five segments, the show will comprise 60 songs. The inaugural programme to be held on July 5 at the BMICH from 6 p.m. will be based on the theme of social and cultural values and human qualities. More programmes will follow there after. The second programme which will take the form of a counselling session will focus on social issues while the third programme is especially designed for children. The fourth will be based on tragic incidents such as the tsunami. The songs in the fifth programme are a blend of those songs based on love, affection and separation.

The concept, lyrics of the songs and all presentations in each programme are by Dr. Kapila Krishantha Sooriyaarachchi - a medical professional attached to the Sri Lanka Health Sector Development Project -Ministry of Health, while Visharada Amarasiri Peiris and Sangith Sastrapathi Kolitha Banu Dissanaike will take part as vocalists for the first and second programmes.

The melodies have been composed by eminent figures including Prof. Sangeeth Nipun Sanath Nandasiri, Victor Ratnayake and Visharada Neea Wickremasinghe.

Since the programme requires a peaceful environment, children under 12 years are not allowed and mobile phones, photographing and video recording are prohibited.

Tickets can be obtained at the entrance on the day of the show or from Salaka, Sams and Sarasavi Bookshop. For more details contact ; 0772963487, 0714840307. website; email
