Naadro began it’s long and yet-unfinished, and necessarily unending journey across the global musical firmament as a percussion band. Within a short period of time they not only obtained instruments from a wide range of cultures but through sheer dedication, practice and love for music became proficient at using them to expand upon the horizons of their percussionist passions. Naadro is constantly exploring the potential of employing traditional percussion instruments from India, Japan, Latin America and Africa along with traditional Sri Lanka drums to create new percussion music.
One of the key and unique features of Naadro is the deliberate effort to go beyond percussion instruments and to incorporate anything and everything that can produce sound as appropriate for the particular creative exercise. This signature style of percussion may include a kitchen utensil, at times vehicle spare parts or even the implements used by a mason.
Experimentation has no limits for those who are unbounded in their creativity and Naadro has introduced many new creations to the world of music. Naadro has provided background music for movies and songs and stamped our presence in the vast and varied field that is called Sri Lankan Music.
