Creative Spot - "Handapane" A new version by Mahendra (Speedy) Gonsalkorale

Hi Lucky,

This is somewhat experimental. I took this old Sunil Shanta favourite "Handapane" and gave it a bit of Western "treatment" to make it sound a bit more inspirational. It is not quite perfected and I intend revising it later but thought I would send it hoping that some may come with helpful comments.


  1. Mahen

    I enjoyed your 'spruced up' version. It takes me back 60 years to my roots and the warm sunshine of Nugegoda ,surrounded by my extended family, many of whom are no more. Very nostalgic.
    Thank you

  2. Dear Mahendra, I have already commented on you tube and I reiterate, it's a nostalgic visit to our past and you have given it a new twist! It's fine! Not many people have the ability or courage to improve on Sunil Santha!

  3. Fantastic Speedy! Where did you hide your talents all these years?
    I really enjoyed listening to one of my childhood favourites given a new twist.

  4. Thanks Sriani, ND and Zita. I just enjoy doing these so much and love sharing with others. Your encouragement is like rain on parched land!
