There are still a few singers like Somatilaka Jayamaha who are not swayed by big money to sing anything in the name of Sinhala music.also continue the policy of lending a hand to the talented singers who wish to do something good.'Siri Yahane' is the title of Somatilaka Jayamaha's latest release containing 16 well-rendered songs. Here again, they are sober numbers when compared with the jazzy stuff we hear throughout the day on the numerous radio channels. Listeners seldom get a chance of hearing Somatilaka's voice over them. What the criterion is, in selecting numbers for broadcast, we do not know.
