Sri Lanka Music Project

Near FM/TV present Healing through Harmonies, an exploration into The Music Project, a cross community initiative which teaches classical music to Tamil and Sinhalese school children and is helping to build bridges between communities once divided by war in Sri Lanka. The story of The Music Project leads the producers to Colombo, Mullavi and Kurunegala in Sri Lanka, and to Belfast in Northern Ireland where striking parallels are discovered. A radio documentary on The Music Project produced by Paul Loughran and Joseph O’Connor is available on podcast here

An Irish Times published article was also produced as part of this multimedia project.
