Popular violinist Karolina Protsenko has taken the Sri Lankan song ‘Manike Mage Hithe’ to the streets in the US.

Ukrainian born Protsenko has posted a video on her YouTube channel where she is seen playing the violin to the tune of ‘Manike Mage Hithe’.

She also posted a message saying the track is her violin cover of Manike Mage Hithe by Yohani and Satheeshan.

Manike Mage Hithe by Yohani and Satheeshan is currently in the top 10 of the global charts.

The Sri Lankan song is at number 7 on the YouTube global charts this week. The song was at number 6 last week.

‘Manike Mage Hithe’ by Yohani and Satheeshan has crossed 116 million views on YouTube.

The song drew India’s attention after Amitabh Bachchan shared a video of him dancing to the Hindi version of the track.

Bachchan had said that his granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda edited the dance sequence from his iconic film Kaalia and replaced the original song ‘Jahan Teri Yeh Nazar Hai’ with ‘Manike Mage Hithe’ in the video.

Later Tiger Shroff, Madhuri Dixit, Parineeti Chopra, musician Sonu Nigam and Indian music producer, composer and social media personality Yashraj Mukhate danced to the tune of ‘Manike Mage Hithe’.

In addition, an IndiGo air hostess also danced to the track in a viral video.

A number of covers have also been recorded of the song in different languages the world over. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Bitter truth:

    If China has not progressed this far; Yohani’s song would not have become so popular, and you would not see thousands of Indians in Australia. Basically, the West is bending backward to have allies. Once the Chian’s headache is over they will spit you out like chewing gum.

    Remember, Russia was used to defeat Germany. Once Hitler’s done the West turned against Russia.

    • I don’t quite understand what you’re saying. (I’m not being hostile or anything I’m genuinely curious). Are you saying that China will spit us out, or….

  2. Antany, You have described the whole of History so beautifully in these few lines. Yes, what you have told has been the bitter truth till now.
