"Mage ratata Dalada himi Saranai, Mage ratata Dalada himi Sewanai"
The demise of Sangeeth Nipun Professor Sanath Nandasiri, who played a unique role in enriching the field of music presenting many beautiful melodies, including this eternal song, will be a huge gap that cannot be filled in Sinhala culture and music.
Being a musician excelled in all the musical arts, he became a singer and music director and has also produced remarkable masterpieces as a lyricist.
He contributed in social reform and social progress through his work and addressed the next generation through his everlasting imagination.
I convey my deepest sympathies to his beloved wife Mrs. Malkanti Nandasiri, daughter Mrs. Anurada Nandasiri, brothers and sisters, relatives, friends, artistes, fans and everyone bereaved by the passing away of our close friend and unique artiste.
May he attain the Supreme bliss of Nibbana!
