Sri Lankan Baila


There MUST be someone out there who might have heard these 12 songs. I hope someone will come forward and identify the artist(s)/LP/CD

What's better? No guessing, because you can hear them on my Baila Page!

The following 12 songs are by an unknown artist (with a few duets thrown in), possibly off one complete LP because the singing voice(s) have continuity. I copied these off someone's multi-generation tape recording (no identification there, either). If the song titles collectively ring a bell as to the artist(s), please let me know the name and any other pertinent details since I am EXTREMELY eager to get the CD, and if it is not available, at least a better copy, for which I can trade anything in my collection. The songs are in the exact order in which they appear on the original medium. Thanks.

I am told these are these are by Nimmal Jayamanna(???) If so, are these from one CD/LP? If so, do you know the name of it? Thanks in advance!
