Another mega show that presented a fine blend of Tamil and Sinhalese music, organized by the Security Forces Headquarters-Jaffna (SF-J) together with DAN TV, thrilled many thousands of music lovers gathered at Muththawali grounds in the middle of the city on Sunday (17) evening.

Jaffna people got an exclusive opportunity to enjoy their favourite songs of both languages be sung on one stage continuously more than four hours. Sri Lanka Army band and the “Abina” group led by S. Shanthan presented their items alternatively while young crowds fascinated by non-stop performances of the singers and musicians danced in small groups. Special feature of the show throughout was that Army band sang Tamil songs and Shanthan’s group sang Sinhala songs.

Meanwhile, occasional enchanting performances by the girls of Sri Lanka Army dancing troupe added glamour to the musical event.

S. Shanthan and the members of the “Abina” group had earlier served for the LTTE after they were conscripted and trained by the terrorists. However, they were fortunate enough to be saved by the Sri Lankan Security Forces during the last phase of the Humanitarian War and rehabilitated by the Bureau of Commissioner General Rehabilitation under the Government’s Rehabilitation Programme for the ex-LTTE members.

The main partnership for this Army-organized mega show was given by the DAN TV, a Jaffna-based leading cable TV station which cater the media needs of people in more than 80 countries.

Commander SF-J Major General Mahinda Hathurusinhe, Chairman DAN TV Mr. Kuhanathan, senior officers of the Armed Forces, Police and the civil sector also witnessed the musical show.
