Ramesh B. Weeratunga, An Album For the World Two People at a Time

Two People - With a delicate touch Ramesh slides into your heart and soul. From the opening title track he creates a mood that radiates love and uplifts. With touching acoustic guitar work “Madha” floats around your ears and beckons you to come in Ramesh’s world of auditory bliss. Mr. Weeratunga does an excellent job of taking traditional Pop, Folk and Rock elements and combining them with Electronic and World sounds to create a true piece of art. One thread that remains constant from track to track is Ramesh’s vocals. You almost feel as if he is singing to just you up close and personal. I feel a strong Pink Floyd influence here and if you are a lover of the Floyd then you will fall head over heels for Ramesh. Not only does he pick up where they left off but he pushes the envelope even further and does it with such beauty and passion that I am sure even Mr. Waters would be a bit jealous. While this release is probably not what you would want to listen to when trying to get amped up for a football match, this is an excellent collection of songs to listen to at the end of a long hectic day. Kicking the tempo and spirit up a bit the number, “Healing Tree”  has a real snap to it. The world has so much that it can throw at you every single minute of every day its nice to have art that can calm the mind and help regain your center. Songs off this release roll over the air like a fresh water spring over land. A personal favorite is the cut “Mr. Hurry” featuring Momo Djender. While full of spirit the song has the ability to make you want calm down and smell the roses. With the number “Erotic Paradise” Mr. Weeratunga shows off his off-center comedic artistic flare. Creating atmosphere on every track and keeping it fresh you have a collection from a true artist that his helping make the world a better place one note at a time. I would highly recommend this album to those that like Rock, Progressive, World, Electrobeat and Funk. With so much static in the air it’s nice to listen to an album that makes you feel like there are just Two People in the room.
