  1. The simple man lovingly called as Master almost for the last 60 years back is the ever living maestro, icon , identity , symbol of Sri Lankan shastriya(Classical ) music. His name itself is a Brand. Amaradeva is now Amaraneeiyay. Deepest sympathies to fellow citizens of Sri Lanka for the great son of the Country.
