RasTamils Brings Light to War-Torn World Through Music

September 18, 2015 7:04 AM | Entertainment

RasTamilsThe second recording from local reggae outfit RasTamils is set to be released next week.

Franklin Fernando, who returned to home to Winnipeg in 2007 after growing up in war-torn Sri Lanka, formed the group with fellow Tamils.

“It’s really just friends coming together to play,” Fernando modestly says.

The concert performance and album release party for It’s A Dream will include special guests Keisha Booker, Dr. Love, and Ismaila Alfa.

The album is described as a collection of “11 dance-inducing anthems, laced with ever-potent, politically-charged lyrics in solidarity with the Tamil people of Sri Lanka.”

Fernando and his group will perform Saturday, September 26 at The Pyramid Cabaret, 176 Fort Street.

Tickets are $20 at the door or $15 in advance at Music Trader & Into the Music.
