to draw out the lyrics and the depth of meaning within. The group’s
music is a speciality and they do not belong to the category of
predictable music. They ensure that their repertoire constantly absorbs
new hits on the global charts which give added attraction to the band.

hop, reggae, the blues, the ‘golden oldies’ as the music is termed and
strict tempo dance music

percussionist Rasmar Lye, the group comprises Trevin Joseph – lead
vocals and guitar, Sampath Kuruwita – keyboard and vocals, Sudath
Munaweera- lead guitar and vocals, Asiri Gunewardena - bass guitar and
vocals and Chamal Ingurusinghe– drums.

PHASE3 a totally different identity. Guitarist Trevin who has been in
the music scene for a long time, has a style of his own. Sudath needs no
introduction. He has performed with some of Sri Lanka’s top bands and
strums a mean guitar. Asiri the bass player with lots of exposure in
Europe, makes his bass guitar do the talking. Sampath the Keyboardist, a
wizard on the keys has a vocal styling of CCR and UB40. The Chamal the
newcomer to the band keeps a steady groove on the skins.
