“Her keyboard technique is formidable. Massive arpeggios seem completely effortless as she weaves together traditional Sri Lankan melodies with inspirations taken from composers like Bach, Debussy and Chopin. She is capable of both the smallest nuance as well as the grandest gesture the keyboard can afford. One begins to wonder if she is perhaps the Keith Jarrett of the subcontinent. “ © The WholeNote, November 2015
