Sanskruthi | is a Sri Lankan Urban music band formed in 2004 by Nalin Liyanage and Manoj Jayawardana. They released their debut single ‘Mithuriye’ in November 2011 and their music is promoted by their independent record label SANSKRUTHI | Records.

Even though Sanskruthi was officially formed in 2004 their music timeline goes back to the days of the year 1998 as Nalin was already leading a vocal band and Manoj was doing his solo singing acts in college which was Thurstan College, Colombo.

A year later they collaborated as a band having one dream of becoming a professional music band in the Sri Lankan music industry.

All the college functions including Band Displays, Leo functions and Interact functions were graced by their outstanding performances as a unique vocal blend. They won the Interact All Island Singing Championship, 2001 and were also awarded as one of the best performance spots at the Interact Talent Search, 2003.

Currently Nalin and Manoj are working on their debut album which will be released under the SANSKRUTHI | Records record label in 2013. This will include a rich variety of high standard Urban music with pure Sri Lankan lyrics and is undoubtedly expected to capture the hearts of Sri Lankan music lovers.
