I don't often get to see music videos. However, these are the types of tunes that might be blaring while I ride a bus and stare at colourful Hindu goddess posters and buddhas framed by flashing lights.

Sri Lankan music often takes a back seat to the larger Bollywood scene. After all, India does have around 1 billion more people. However, there is a small and fun music scene here. Check out these couple of recent videos. You will quickly learn that young Sri Lankan men (as depicted in the following) like their love songs, love special effects, and dream of owning their own tuk-tuk.

Enjoy!
