Vernon Corea’s Message on Clarence Wijewardena’s ‘The Lotus Album’ of the 1970s

Clarence Wijewardena and the Super Golden Chimes in Sri Lanka in the early 1970s.

In the early 1970s, Sri Lanka’s King of Pop, Clarence Wijewardena, walked down Maha Nuge Gardens in Kollupitiya to meet Vernon in his residence. At the time Clarence Wijewardena was at the height of his popularity, on the island of Sri Lanka. Clarence asked Vernon to write an Open Letter which was published on the sleeve of ‘The Lotus Album.’

The best selling album also featured Indrani Perera, Anil Bhareti, Lilanthi Karunanayake and Annesley Malewana.
