'Janu' promotes drumming
A versatile percussionist, composer and singer, Jananath Warakagoda
wants to teach the art of playing drums to the youngsters plus the drum
enthusiasts, exactly the way he had learnt it as a novice.
"Percussion is my forte and I am keen to promote this art with a new
generation of people," he says.
Jananath, widely known as 'Janu' was born into a family of artistes
where his parents were well known actors/musicians and his sister is a
classical dancer. He began to play drums at a very young age and by now
Janu has proved to be one of the talented drummers of modern times. He
has travelled widely in Europe, the US and Asia and has performed in
many international concerts.
In his effort to promote the wonderful art of drumming, Janu will
soon start classes at the 'Ape Gama' premises in Battaramulla. The
inauguration ceremony will be held on February 15 at 11 AM.
Ajith Mendi's Kema Lasthi will be staged at the Town Hall, Badulla on
February '15 at 3.30 p.m. and 6.30 p.m.
