Besides the uniqueness of two songstresses performing in Australia, it is fascinatingly a guru-disciple combination too – Deepika being a music student of Visharada Nanda Malini.


Visharada Nanda Malini told Daily Mirror Impulse that she was glad to join Deepika in this historic musical event, largely because she appreciated Deepika’s commitment and dedication as a songstress from her younger days.


Interestingly this is Nanda Malini’s 10th tour to Melbourne and the sixth to Brisbane.
Talented musician Indrajith Mirihana will direct the music orchestration with tuneful support coming from D. D. Gunasena, Kalindu Weerasinghe and tablist Dhananjaya.

The musical shows are being organized by Melbourne-based Danushka Fernando.
Deepika Priyadarshani said she cherished Visharada Nanda Malini from her schooldays and her days at the Sangeetha Ashramya where she also met Malani Bulathsinhala, Lakshman Wijesekara and Ananda Weerasiri.


“I never dreamt that I would someday share the same stage with this renowned songstress who was my one time teacher.
I was blessed to sing with Malani Bulathsinhala who was also a teacher of mine at the Mal Warusa musical event in Italy. As the news broke that I was joining Visharada Nanda Malini in the Australian shows, several enthusiastic people are inquiring whether we can’t do it here in Sri Lanka,” Deepika said.
