The Soul Sounds Academy Children’s Choir proudly adorned the Sri Lankan ethical brand Selyn at the prestigious World Choir Games in Tshwane, South Africa. 

Winning the Silver Medal in the Children’s category and a Bronze Medal in the Folk Music category, the young champions represented Sri Lanka in a range of Selyn’s vibrant handloom sarongs and jewellery made by traditional weavers based across the Selyn handloom villages which are located in the rural outskirts of the North-Western, Eastern and Southern provinces of Sri Lanka.
