Tanya Ekanayaka's 'Twelve Piano Prisms' extend the concept heard on her album 'Reinventions: Rhapsodies for Piano.' They correspond to the twelve primary notes of the keyboard, and combine Sri Lankan melodies with music from other countries in a deeply personal representation of diverse cultures; their style inspired not only by a rich heritage of Western classical and indigenous world music, but also by pop, rock and film music. Dr. Tanya Ekanayaka is an internationally acclaimed and award-winning Sri Lankan-British concert composer-pianist regarded as one of Sri Lanka's finest artists. Classically trained and with a background in Asian and Popular music, she is also a linguist, musicologist and record producer. Although she trained as a pianist, her compositional skills are the result of a purely intuitive and natural development.
