The Music Project was recently featured on the documentary "Our World - Sri Lanka's Open Wounds" on BBC World. It's four years since Sri Lankan government troops crushed the Tamil Tiger separatist militants, ending the civil war. But 30 years of violence has left a bleak legacy. The BBC's correspondent in Sri Lanka, Charles Haviland, reports for Our World on the lasting trauma for victims of the war who feel their voices are not being heard.
By Shehani Alwis Two countries as far apart as Northern Ireland and Sri Lanka have come together in the name of the universal language of music. The Music Project from Sri Lanka in collaboration with Beyond Skin from Northern Ireland has launched their cultural education project “Parallel VersingT” which aims on a musical exchange between two vastly different cultures.
Our joint project with BeyondSkin, Parallel Versing, has been featured in an article in the Daily Mirror.

Our Testimonials
 
Volunteering with the Music Project in Kurunegala has been a very worthwhile and enjoyable experience. During my time with the Project I have taught English in the mornings at a local school called Lakdasa College.

Then in the afternoons I travelled to several different schools with the Music Project itself to teach English, trumpet and recorder. The children are all very eager to learn which makes them a pleasure to teach.
