have been televised on BBC Television and Channel 4.
On a Decca folk album of Nimal Mendis, Record producer Ray Horricks
says "His work combines an awareness of western melody and harmony with great originality in his story ideas, while there
is a very exotic eastern flavour about his choice of words. Also he features several unusual rhythmic feelings..."
