‘Manike’ violin cover captivates US Envoy
The Ambassador said the violin version played by Ukrainian-born musician Karolina Protsenko on the streets of California is a testament that music is a universal language.
“I enjoyed listening to @Karolina_Violin play the #SriLankan song #ManikeMageHithe on the streets of California! I hope you enjoy it too.
Such a testament as to music as the universal language,” Ambassador Teplitz tweeted.
Protsenko has posted a video on her YouTube channel where she is playing the violin to the tune of ‘Manike Mage Hithe’. She also posted a message saying the track is her violin cover of Manike Mage Hithe by Yohani and Satheeshan.
The Sri Lankan song is at number 7 on the YouTube global charts this week.
