Their colourful ancestry goes back to Capt de Lanerolle (special emissary of France’s Royal Court) who arrived in Trincomalee in 1672 with a French naval expedition and later settled down here.
Centuries later the French charm still holds good in his two famous descendants. The “de Lanerolle” brand (one rolls the ‘r’ when pronouncing the name) is a seamless fusion of two contrasting personalities unified by an abiding passion for music.
Did you know that Rohan and Ishan (at times) practice in their office and have their staff gaping at them in sheer disbelief ? Did you know that Rohan is the talkative and more daring one … while Ishan is the relatively discreet one – quite unlike the image they project ?
How does Rohan invent lines, sing verses in the wrong order and still get away with it ? How does Ishan completely forget lines and continue convincingly without audiences ever realizing it.
