Yanni Live in Sri Lanka
Yiannis Chryssomallis, known professionally as Yanni, is a Greek pianist, keyboardist, composer and music producer who has spent his adult life in the United States.
Yanni continues to use the musical shorthand that he developed as a child, blending jazz, classical, soft rock, and world music to create predominantly instrumental works. As this genre of music was not well suited for commercial pop radio and music television, Yanni achieved international recognition by producing concerts at historic monuments and by producing videos that were broadcast on public television. His breakthrough concert, Yanni Live at the Acropolis, yielded the second best-selling music video of all time. Additional historic sites for Yanni's concerts have included India's Taj Mahal, China's Forbidden City, the United Arab Emirates' Burj Khalifa, Russia's Kremlin, Puerto Rico's El Morro castle and Lebanon's ancient city of Byblos.
Sri Lanka, as a nation receives her turn to experience the enchanting and exhilarating performance, as Yanni presents an evening of selective music which is guaranteed to capture the amazement and appreciated of young and old alike.
