“Nethangasaraa” was a very good song sung by Upali Ranjith in 1980-1990. His first album had the same name and with very good collection of songs. He also sang theme songs in few of the teledramas. But I did not get a chance to listen to any of his new songs. Is he still singing or what happened to him? I am curious as he was a very good singer. He had a voice like Athma Liyanage.

When I was watching “Sanhida” program in ITN, a musician called Nandana Liyanage sang “Kombule mage Kombule, Tharadevi Kombule” song. I noticed that he had same facial expressions and singing style very much closer to popular singer Athma Liyanage. First I thought it is Athma and then I realized it is not exactly his voice. But amazingly had same look, just like Athma. I wonder if anyone knows anything about this singer…. The look a like of Athma Liyanage
