Sri Lanka’s first retro fusion this New Year’s Eve at The Kingsbury

Friday, 14 November 2014 02:31 -     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}

It’s probably a historic event where you will get to celebrate a fusion of English and Sinhala retro classics under one roof with legends such as – Annesley Malawana & CJ Dharson of Mintaka. These two names are synonymous with the retro era in both Western and Oriental music scenes in Sri Lanka. The Kingsbury has been very clever in identifying that Sri Lankans love to party and celebrate but the party must consist of both English and Sinhala retro songs. To a true Sri Lankan; whether you’re living in Melbourne, Australia or in the heart of London in UK, this combination evokes such sentimental memories of home, childhood, first love encounters and friendships that stay in our hearts forever. There is a special place in our hearts for Sinhala classics such as ‘Udarata Niliya’ or ‘Mango Kalu Nannde’ and these songs can also be equated to a hearty Sri Lankan rice and curry meal, or the cup of tea that is very much a part of our Sri Lankan DNA.  With the intention of showcasing an era of music that is so near and dear to the adult segment, New Year’s Eve dance at The Kingsbury will certainly set the standards with their scrumptious food – Gala dinner and breakfast buffets, three very premium bottles of spirits, two bottles of Red or White, plenty of brew and chasers per table of 10 to entertain you in grand Kingsbury style. As the name suggests, The Kingsbury is a tribute to royalty and lavish banquets. This New Year’s Eve, live The Kingsbury lifestyle. Make it a timeless experience. One where you will carry the memories with you forever and from here on you will not settle for anything less. The Kingsbury General Manager Maurice Cook, a proud Sri Lankan who has lived and worked overseas for the last 38 years was elated to mention, “We have an excellent network of Sri Lankans living overseas that return to The Kingsbury every Christmas for a ‘piece of home’. This year’s ‘Retro Fusion’ is just that. We are excited to note the response from our loyal clientele here in Sri Lanka too and we’re certainly rolling out the red carpet this New Year’s Eve.” Tickets are priced at Rs. 15,000 nett per person and are on sale now from the special events desk at The Kingsbury lobby.
