US Ambassador in Sri Lanka Alaina B Teplitz has tweeted that she enjoyed listening to the violin cover of the hit Sri Lankan song Manike Mage Hithe by Yohani and Satheeshan.
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.
