We organised Music Workshops in the Uruthirapuram MV , Killinochchi and Uduvil Girls' College, Uduvil in Sri Lanka.
The workshops were conducted on a purely voluntary basis by concert pianist, composer, linguist and musicologist. Dr.Tanya Ekanayaka who is at present a part-time faculty member of Edinburgh University in Scotland. 168 students and music teachers in schools in the Killinochchi region (namely Urithirapuram Mv, Tharmapuram MV, Piramathanaru MV, Kn/ Centaral College, Kn/ Hindu College, Kn/ Fatima RCTMS, Konavil GTMS, Kn/St. Thresa College, Akarayan GTMS, Sivanaga GTMS) and other main schools in Jaffna participated the workshop.
Dr. Ekanayaka's music workshops are intended for students, musicians and others interested in discovering how to articulate their thoughts and experiences creatively through the language of music and how music can serve as a powerful resource for affecting empowerment and mutual healing. Part of the workshops also involve young musicians (instrumentalists and singers) performing works of their choice and obtaining constructive feedback that would help them improve their artistic skills.
