If Vernon Corea was alive he would have loved the music of Rukshan Karunanayake and the Chimes of the 70s. It would have reminded him of the early days of Clarence Wijewardena, Annesley Malewana and The Moonsones. Rukshan has the potential to be a huge star in Sri Lanka. What’s so wonderful is that he has old fashioned values and shows respect. He is an accomplished musician who will go far in the world of music in Sri Lanka. Rukshan attended the Memorial Service to Vernon Corea at St. Paul’s Church Milagiriya in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
