Welcome and thank you for taking time to visit Sri Lanka Ranga Kala Kavaya website.

As the largest and oldest Sri Lankan cultural organization in D.C metro area, we want to make sure that you get a chance to know about us, what we do and what we intend to do in the future. Our intentions are clear. We help you in the remembrance and recollection of your cultural metaphors close to your heart; because culture is not a trading object for us but a way of knowledge sharing and strengthening relationships, especially with our roots and our motherland. Our ultimate goal is to connect you with our motherland through culture.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRIMARY PATRON OF SRI LANKA RANGA KALA KAVAYA

The celebration of the 25th Anniversary Silver Jubilee by the Sri Lanka Ranga Kala Kavaya of Washington DC is a momentous occasion, not only for the members of the Ranga Kala Kavaya, but for the Sri Lankan American community living in the East Coast of the United States and beyond. The evolution of this organization from modest beginnings to become a prominent community organization with a unique profile and a character merits recognition and appreciation.

Culture is a amalgamation of beliefs, values, traditions and way of life of peoples and communities. By nature its dynamic and evolves through experience and interaction of the ancient with the present, and tradition with the modernity. People of Sri Lanka are heirs to an ancient culture. As islanders, over the years, Sri Lankans have welcomed and absorbed traits and traditions of new cultures that reached the Sri Lankan shores, making the Sri Lankan culture even more diverse, inclusive and vibrant. These characteristics are abundant in the conduct of Sri Lankan communities living overseas, who nurture the culture of their motherland, transcending its spirit to their adopted countries of residence.

Mobilizing this spirit among Sri Lankan Americans in the Washington DC region, Sri Lanka Ranga Kala Kavaya, over the years, has been able to provide a space for Sri Lankan Americans in the East Coast to celebrate and nourish their culture and to create a platform to enjoy its best aspects, in particular, its performing arts.

Recognizing that culture is a product of human endeavour reflecting the best of the human spirit, members of the Sri Lanka Ranga Kala Kavaya have embarked on charitable activities to assist those in need in their motherland. Such initiatives have been widely appreciated by Sri Lankan beneficiaries. As the community of Sri Lankan Americans living in the United States expands, the cultural and social interest of Sri Lankans Americans will be reflected in the dynamics of the relations between the United States and Sri Lanka. In this context, the role envisaged by the membership of the Ranga Kala Kavaya for promoting people to people contacts between the United States and Sri Lanka is laudable. I am particularly pleased to recognize Sri Lanka Ranga Kala Kavaya as a prominent Sri Lankan community organization that intends to profile and promote the interests of Sri Lankan American community in the United States to further promote relations between the United States and Sri Lanka to reach new heights.

I take this opportunity to congratulate Sri Lanka Ranga Kala Kavaya for its achievements during the past 25 years, and would like to recognize and felicitate all its members and officials who served this organization over the years for their commitment and dedication to the success of the organization. On this occasion, I wish all success for the future endeavours of the Sri Lanka Ranga Kala Kavaya in all their activities in the years to come.

Prasad Kariyawasam - Ambassador
