Women from the North and North East, and women from the South of Sri Lanka have used song, music, theatre and art to express themselves collectively, heal, criticise, dissent, analyse and bond – through times of war, conflict and tragedy. Travelling across language and ethnic borders, women’s movements also used song and music to unify – to create a common platform from which they could share stories and express common goals and desires. Moderated by Sulochana Dissanayake.
Ending with a drum-duet between two all-women drum ensembles, each representing different regions of Sri Lanka.
