Sri Lanka Matha
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
|English: National Anthem of Sri Lanka (Mother Sri Lanka)|
|National anthem of||Sri Lanka|
|Lyrics||Ananda Samarakoon, 1940|
|Music||Ananda Samarakoon, 1940|
Sri Lanka Matha is the national anthem of Sri Lanka. The words and music were written by Ananda Samarakoon in 1940 in the Sinhala language, and was officially adopted as the national anthem on November 22, 1951 by a committee headed by Sir Edwin Wijeyeratne.
The first line of the anthem originally read: "Namo namo matha, apa Sri Lanka". There was some controversy over these words in the 1950s, and in early 1962 they were changed to their present form.
