Awesome dance performance by the artists, especially the male artist. Their unstoppable energy to play drums is outstanding. U will love every single performance each depicting a story of their culture.

The show goes for about 60 minutes and is enjoyable. I'm not sure that it was truly cultural but these was music, dancing and costumes.

Cultural dance with drums. A typical cultural performance portraying Sri Lanka. Dancers n performers were pleasant and energetic. The place looks run down for a tourist show. The fire walking was the finale of the event.

A wonderful night to spend in Kandy. Tickets are 1,000 rupees each, Fri is expensive. But the dancers were really enjoying what they were doing. Got seats at the front, no prior booking needed. Need a tuk tuk to get here as it's uphill.

When we first arrived the shonky auditorium, with the plastic chairs and the hoards of tourists, was a bit off putting. The show itself was a wonderful and very entertaining cultural experience. The performers were fabulous especially the drummers. The two guys walking on the...More
