Greatest Sri Lankan Male Singers

The Top Ten
1 Milton Mallawarachchi

Milton Mallawarachchi was one of the best and most respected singer in Sri Lanka. He had very perfect voice. His every song fulfilled with good lyrics, good music and with his great nice voice.

Milton never sang a bad song. He had all his presentations so good, he could do a fast-paced song or slow-paced song and make them all sound absolutely perfect. He had something in his voice that many singers don't he was an artist with his voice painting a pretty picture, and unlike most singers, he didn't need to autotune or even music to show how great his voice really was.

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

2 W.D. Amaradeva

He's is Sri Lanka's best vocalist. There's no one who could even tough his vocal range. He is the creator of modern Sinhalese music having the capability of singing both classical ragadhari and western styles.
Following are some of his achievements:

All India Violin champion - 1955
Composed Maldivian National anthem - 1972
Composed classical and western styles of music.

He is the best artist ever.

Love that amazing voice

3 Sunil Shantha

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.

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

4 Ivor Dennis

The great voice

5 Clarence Wijewardena

He is the singer who sang best of group songs. I think about my knowledge he was the overlord of the BAND MUSIC. I think he is the best guitar player in srilanka. Now a days new bands have many brand new electrical guitars. They are more expensive. But they can't to close klarance's music. His music is so sweet and excellent.

Oh my goodness! He pioneered the use of electric guitar in Sri Lanka, wrote songs for others (Milton Mallawarachchi, W.D. Amaradeva), even some dedicated to others (Dileepa Podi Puthu) and you give him 43! Come on, at least in top 10!

Best musician in Sri Lanka,2nd to none...

6 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!

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

Yeah I remember all the way back when I tried so hard to attend every one of his concerts. He has the most phenomenal and unique voice in Sri Lanka

7 Iraj

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.

Love the raps he produce

He is the best producer in sri lanka.
he helped sriLankan poor peoples every time.

8 Vijaya Kumaranatunga

The Most Beautiful Singer and the Personality & Charisma Ever! Milton, Vijaya & Clarence should be the Top 3

Greatest actor in Sri Lanka of all time.

9 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.

10 T.M. Jayarathna
The Contenders
11 C.T. Fernando
12 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 also very good for classical songs.

13 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

Sri Lankan people are the dumbest nation I've ever seen, may God bless you if Rajapaksa win the election.
Kasun Kalhara is the most talented singer and Jothipala's voice is complete trash compared to Kasun's. He has the best voice in the country. No one ever minded to even put him to the list huh? You people don't know music, such a shame

Sir Kasun Kalhara is the number one singer in Srilanka without any argument!.
NOTHING can be compared to his AMAZING voice and his beautiful composing. And he is a Multitalented and a creative person. ''A proper singer'' is a person who can change the world in to a better place with a kind heart and a helping hand, and he is one of them. <3 and that makes him Unique from the rest. He is Simply the Best!


14 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, and 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, hail "Sudu Araliya Mala" as the number one hit in Sri Lanka. Ajith's vocal resonance and voice projection are unmatched. His articulation and pronunciation of difficult Sinhala words demonstrate 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 has sung in Sri Lanka. What else is there to say but to listen and 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 anthem and replace it with a timely heart-warmer like S.A.M.

Thank you.

15 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!

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...

16 H. R. Jothipala

Anyone can't break his records. He was the singer who sang most popular and numbers of songs. Now, most of new singers and superstars in Sri Lanka sing his songs. So, he is the king of sinhala music.

Jothi is the best and No.1 singer in Sri Lanka no doubt about that.

He should be number 1

17 Sunil Edirisinghe

Best singer ever, best meaning.

His voice is awesome

18 Jude Rogans

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

19 Priya Suriyasena

Best singer ever in Sri Lanka.

20 Gunadasa Kapuge

Should be the number 1. greatest singer in Sri Lankan music history.

21 Bandara Athauda

Bandara Athauda ranked at #14 shows how little people know about Sri Lankan Music... It's pathetic and shame to the whole country to see Jude Rogans as the 1st, Ajith Muthukumarana as the 5th, Roshan Pranandu as 6th, Dushyanth Weeraman as 9th & Damith Asanka as 10th. Jackson Anthony the 3rd Greatest Singer in Sri Lanka!? What a Retard? Are you Crazy!?

22 Sanath Nandasiri
23 Nihal Nelson

Good baila singer

24 Roshan Pranandu

Some one has commented on Iraj as Arguably the Biggest Ponnaya in the Industry! But I would make it 2nd... Roshan Pranandu is the Biggest Ponnaya of all!

25 Haroon Lanthra
