Islanders is Surrey's premier Sri Lankan Fusion Band. Bringing a medley of skills from across the globe since 2010, Islanders draws from their past musical experiences to fuse Sri-Lankan music with other genres such as Funk, Rock, Jazz and Hip-Hop (to name a few). As most of the members hail from Sri-Lanka, they are dedicated to bringing the rich culture of their homeland to Canada.
Islanders have performed for several years at their stage show, Miyuru Raawa. They have also performed with touring Sri Lankan musicians such as Kasun Kalhara, Mithra Kapuge and Nalika Anjana Kumara. They are also excited to host a dinner dance with the King of Sri-Lankan Baila: Desmond de Silva alongside songstress Mariazelle Goonetillake on October 20th. They look forward to returning to the Surrey Fusion Festival this year after having a great time in 2011 and in 2016. Make sure to bring your dancing shoes!
