Dear friends:

The SLAS would like to offer an opportunity to the community members to break the winter monotone with a Gee Pedura that all of us can participate and enjoy.

As the initial step, SLAS cordially invites to any volunteers from the Saskatoon Sri Lankan community to organize this interactive singing program in the Pedura-Style.

If you are interested in being in the organizing committee and would like to provide any input please reply to this e-mail (SLAS) before 2nd of February(this Thursday).

Proposed theme: Popular songs of 60’s to 90’s with traditional and local music elements [Many of these songs/choices would happen to be Sinhala songs but not necessarily].

Proposed date & time: Evening of Saturday, 18th February, 2017 (family day weekend).

We cordially invite our music lovers to get involved in this event and hope to see your support; organizing as well as performing.
