Nimantha Heshan Gamage became known to me first through Sirasa Super Star season 3. He conducted a work shop for the final contestants. Then next time I saw him as a judge in the Sirasa Super Star generation and I wanted to know more about this talented and humble musician. But my desire was suppressed knowing that talented people like this are not given popularity by main stream media. I was wrong when I realized that Heshan has performed in “Wisekaralankaraya” program and it was because of him I started watching all the video clips from Swarnavahini. Thanks to him I was able to watch few amazing talents in young artists like Saman Lenin and his Rhythm of Culture band, Rakhitha Nuwan and his band, and peshala Manoj.
