Now a Sinhala hit by KNH
Back in the spotlight is the
threesome the KNH Project who have released their first Sinhala hit and
they can proudly claim that they are the first among professional
Dee-Jays in Sri Lanka to achieve it.
Earlier they had a first in the recording and release of “Dollar Boy’
which became a rage with club groovers. The song was played many a time
at many a nite club and was a kind of a weekend special song. Now the
KNH’s new release is Heta Elivena Thura Nata and there’s no denying that
the song is fast gaining popularity. We asked Harith of KNH for a low
down on the release.
“The track is a light-hearted song focusing on partying tourist spots
in Sri Lanka. The chorus goes:-
Kandy, Colombo, Hikka, Negombo
Arugambay, Hikkaduwa, Meegamuwe, Unawatune, Kandy, Colombo, Jaffna,
After thirty years of conflict this is our aim to promote Sri Lanka
as a beautiful island with fabulous beaches and a must on every
tourist’s itinerary. To make it more exciting we recorded a video too,
showcasing our wonderful beaches and the many water sports Sri Lanka can
offer to tourists as a preferred vacation destination. The song which is
now being airplayed was produced by Iraj Weeraratne while the lyrics
were by Wasantha Dukgannarala,” said Harith.
The trio Kapila, Naushad and Harith are planning more projects which
no other professional Dee Jay in Sri Lanka has done as yet. Keeping the
KNH flag flying high is Naushad who is the resident DJ at the high-tech
disco Mojo. After the successful Dollar Party 2010 to usher in the year
2010 at the Hilton Colombo, which incidentally was a first for the KNH,
because hitherto a live band ushered in every new year. On this occasion
it was a resounding success for the threesome. So this December KNH have
surprises up their sleeve, keep in touch.
House music is their trademark and everyone knows how KNH came
together to become a distinguished and popular force in the nite club
scene, spinning grooves at the Blue Elephant. When they are not together
behind the console KNH are putting their heads together to plan new
ideas and schemes to make groovers happy on the dance floor. Now this
new Sinhala hit and video is another result of this “musical
brainstorming” that KNH do ever so often. Heta Elivena Thuru is will be
Good luck KNH!
