He is the singer who sang best of love and sad songs.

Arguably the Number 1 Singer in Sri Lanka! & the King of Love Songs

Best voice... Great singer nothing like anything

2 Iraj

Arguably the Biggest Ponnaya in the Industry!

This guy is pure crap and greedy of money... Despite he having his personality sold to money for going 'kade' for former president

Love the raps he produce

Iraj revolutionized the hiphop music industry in Sri Lanka. He is an all in one product. He can sing, compose music and do T.V. shows. I like iraj because he got a good personality.

3 Jude Rogans

Pandit Amaradewa told that Jude Rogans is the Greatest Singer in Sri Lanka!
What else is there to say!?

What kind of a GOO PONNAYA is this?

Neyamai jude

4 Ajith Muthukumarana

I don't know what is the Biggest Joke out of these 2:
Jackson Anthony the 3rd Greatest singer in sri lanka or Amith Walpola the 7th Greatest singer in sri lanka. What nonsense? Both Jackson & Amith would kneel before the Singing of Ajith Muthukumarana!

What!? Ajith Muthukumarana is by Far the Greatest singer ever to walk on Sri Lankan soil & what is he doing down here!? People, he deserves the 1st Place! Have you ever heard SUDU ARALIYA MALA?

The poetic storytelling nature of Ajith Muthukumarana's lyrics combined with the brilliant musical composition by Sakura Range hails "SUDU ARALIYA MALA" as the number one Hit in Sri Lanka. Ajith's vocal resonation and voice projection is unmatched. His articulation & pronunciation of difficult Sinhala Words demonstrates the medieval Sinhala scholar within Muthukumarana. The Feeling plus the emotion he adds to the song brings a tear to the eye of even the most heartless person known. His tremolo effect is better than that of any human who have sung in Sri Lanka. What else is there to say, but to listen & Cry in-front of the Beauty of Sudu Araliya Mala!

Sudu Araliya Mala should be the National Anthem of Sri Lanka! Government authorities, please consider replacing the current boring ...more

I'm a Sri Lankan Male & I'm not Gay, but I Love Ajith Muthukumarana more than my wife.

5 W.D. Amaradeva

He is the singer who sang best of nationality songs. He is the GOLD SIGN IN SINHALA MUSIC.

He is the number 1 singer

6 Konganige Joseph Malsi Jackson Anthony

Jackson is able to show a large range with his exaggerated voice. He can go from a harsher Death Metal sound, to a punk sound, to a Hip-hop sound, to a reggae sound & to a sound completely unique and Sri Lankan of his own. It would be very hard for other Sri Lankan Singers to show such range (including Iraj, Dushyanth & Randhir).

You can recognize his sound of Over-singing, and his over-exaggerated singing passion is right from his buttocks! Clearly should be the 1st.

Yo yo honey sing

There is no better singer or a vocalist or a performer in the history of srilanka than jaksan antany. I won't deny that ajith muthukumarana is a legend and is one of the greatest of all time, but he can't touch the vocal range of jaksan! But he is definitely better than this guy called sunil edirisinghe! It is nice to see amith walpala in the Top 10 as well.

To Finish my vote, My Top 3 Are:
1. Jaksan antany 2. Ajith muthukumarana 3. Amith walpala


7 Sunil Shantha

He is the singer who sang the LANKAN FIRST OWN MADE SONGS.

Pivotal musician. Should really rank higher on list. Important figure in Sri Lankan culture.

Are you kidding me? A miscarriage like iraj at second place and perhaps the founder of sinhala music and one of the best singers like Sir Sunil Shantha at seven.

9 Roshan Pranandu

Number One Ponnaya in Sri Lanka!

Number one singer in Sri Lanka. Flashback is superb

Best musical band leader in srilanka... And a multi millionier

10 Ajith Bandara

Ajith Ayya's mouth is so beautiful that we schoolgirls watched his singing during Sirasa Super Star 1st ever season & the best season in my judgement, with our school uniforms and went to night clubs that played Ajith Ayya's songs mainly. When he sings, his mouth is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Thanks for letting me add my comment too. Goodbye and Good luck Ajith Ayya. I was an 18 year old schoolgirl when you became Sirasa Superstar and now I'm a mother of 10 Kids. I became pregnant while listening to your songs in the night clubs. Thank you Ajith Ayya! I love you Ajith Ayya!

The Greatest Singer in the History of SIRASA SUPER STAR! He is even better than Priya Sooriyasena! Ajith Aiya we are always with you...

The Contenders

11 Victor Rathnayake

He was the first one man singer in Sei Lanka! I heard that people that couldn't obtain tickets to his show would even break into the auditoriums!

Yes he is definitely the best singer in all of Sri Lanka. Long live the king!

I love every one of his songs! He is the King of Romance!

I love how he blends western and classical Sri Lankan music just so neither one gets overpowered but both blend beautifully!

12 Dharmadasa Walpola

As far back as the latter part of 1950’s and 1960s dubbing Sinhala dialogue into Hindi and Tamil movies became highly popular with fully packed audience. Dharmadasa Walpola was adjudged the best play-back singer for his pre-eminent golden voice over the world acclaimed Indian singers. Pathiwatha, Veeravikrama, Ahinsaka Prayogya, Angulimala, Sudu Nangi, Ley Kandulu, Shimbo, and Anjalee are clear testimony to his masterly vocal performance.

Initially, since film industry in Sri Lanka was not equipped with technical resources, producers were compelled to go to South India in early 1950s to film their production. This prompted them to hire Indian singers at a lower charge. But Lata Walpola and Dharmadasa Walpola broke the South Indian monopoly and became indomitable duo in Sinhala Cinema.
Dharmadasa Walpola was not only the leading play-back singer but also the indisputable singer in ballet radio and stage drama music. His masterly performance of singing in Bari Sil, Kela Mal ...more

13 Amith Walpola

Are you NUTS?
Amith is a MILLION times better than Dharmadasa Walpola! Those who compare Amith to Dharmadasa are Idiots! What nonsense...

14 J. A. Milton Perera

He was very good for sentimental songs. He remained on top on his own merits.
He sang from the heart.

He was one of the best sinhala cinema singers in srilanka.

16 Kasun Kalhara Jayawardhana

A perfect singer with an amazing voice. Most of the Sri Lankan singers can't sing songs in live. Their voices are crap for many reasons, so they use technology to cover their terrible singing. But Kasun has an inborn talent to sing. He don't want technology, he sings perfectly. Best singer without any arguement

Kasun is a unique singer for ever I heard, and the creation of songs amazing I can chill when I listen to his song

I like his songs, and his voice... Best singer in new generation

Perfect singer

He is such a talented violinist also

18 Tyronne Maddumage

Tyronne Maddumage has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard! Truly an amazing & gifted singer. He is fabulous on recordings, but to experience his vocals live is a definite must! I was completely blown away from his anthem 'Hela Viruwan visu Lanka' with all the Cricketers & I think his voice just gets better & stronger each time. He has such power & high range which in my humble opinion is unbeatable. He has the ability to carry those soaring choruses & yet convey such heart-wrenching emotion that makes my spine tingle like no-one else I ever heard. Tyronne Maddumage definitely gets my Vote!

Tyronne Maddumage is the Greatest singer in Sri Lanka! He sang the great CRICKET SONG "Hela Viruwan visu Lanka! " I Love Tyronne!

The art of Patriotic singing has two chapters - 'Before Tyronne' and 'After Tyronne'. Though Bathiya N' Santhush created Patriotic singing, it was Tyronne Maddumage who showed the Sri Lankan people its power...

Every singer bows against the Tyronne Maddumagay's Voice!

19 Damayantha Kuruppu

I was a teen when Damayantha Kuruppu began singing, but very few of his songs appealed to me: I grew up in a family of hat music lovers. Last year I found a station that played nothing but Damayantha's music, including the several takes required to make a master that satisfied him, his live concerts, and informal recordings of his in-studio and at-home jam sessions. I'm 60 years old, and I've never heard anything like Damayantha Kuruppu's voice. I still don't "like" everything he sang, but he has no equal among recorded singers. He could, and did, sing anything. When I read that the notorious folk singer, Lionel Ranwala said, "He had the voice I wish I had gotten", I listened a little harder. Musicians themselves still place Damayantha Kuruppu at the top of their lists of the most excellent singers that ever lived!


Please check 'Baila Sajje - Damayantha Kuruppu & Paul Fernando'
Damayantha Kuruppu A.K.A. baila Chakrawarthie is an Amazing Singer. Please search and study his Music. And don't forget to give the Vote too.

There is nothing better in this world to me than the voice of Damayantha Kuruppu.
