The Sri Lankan-British artist-scholar describes her article for the publication as “…entirely about my broader artistic vision as a South Asian female composer-pianist, in which I talk about aspects of my creative life and purpose which I have not shared previously publicly.”

BALAKIREV Complete Piano Works Vol. 4Released in May this year, Dr Ekanayaka’s latest album is titled The Planets and Humanity – Piano Reflections (GP879) in which she pairs planets in the Solar System with Earth’s seven continents: “Except for Antarctica, which has no permanent human population, my reflections on the remaining six continents involve ‘transcreations’ of six melodies originating from six indigenous peoples, namely the Asháninka, Cree, Gond, Hadzabe, Numbulwar and Sámi peoples.”
