about

________________________________

NILUSHA DASSENAIKE
The Lotus Verses
Primed with a pure velvet voice that crosses two languages and composing and arranging skills that weave together a rare synthesis of contemporary jazz and Sri Lankan folk music, Nilusha Dassenaike has crafted a debut album that takes an entirely fresh approach to contemporary vocal improvisation by integrating elements of soul and pop with the rich traditions of jazz, world music and so much more. The album also features performances by a selection of Australia’s finest creative musicians, Alex Pertout, Luke Howard, Andrea Keller, Peter Petrucci, Miroslav Bukovski, Christopher Hale and Craig Newman.
