On the scout for musicians in Galle, Sri Lanka the good hint of a bar owner brings us to the only music store in the city. When we ask the shopkeeper whether he knows any musos, the man hurries away and after less than three minutes Saman Lenin stands in front of us, the shop owner’s brother, and he loves our project. The musician studies voice at the “University of the Visual & Performing Arts” in Colombo and takes his time to meet us for a recording session – despite his full schedule. After that we meet up almost every day, Saman Lenin invites us to his friend’s recording studio in Colombo to record a song with us. The musician quickly becomes a friend and one thing is for sure: Saman will be in Germany in 2014 when we enter the harbor of Rostock for the Hansesail. We already look forward to seeing him again soon!
If you’re in Sri Lanka and want to visit Saman, just write him an e-mail!
