Rhythm of Kandyan Drums - Wesak Concert in Brickfields Maha Vihara (3)



Drumming is very much part and parcel of music in Buddhist & Hindu temples in Sri Lanka. We had a Kandyan drum performance by professionals drummers from Sri Lanka for the Wesak concert.
It was a veritable display of colour and rhythm — the dancers caught our eyes with their colourful attires and their graceful and synchronised movements to the fast-paced and energetic beat of drums. We couldn't help tapping our feet and swaying our body to the rhythm of the drums.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
