The Jaffna Music Festival has been organized under the music cooperation between Sri Lanka and Norway, together with United States Agency for International Development (USAID) since its inception in 2009.
Rikskonsertene (Concerts Norway) and the Royal Norwegian Embassy are supporting this venture in partnership with LiveSquare under the Norway-Bangladesh Music Cooperation. The Jaffna Music Festival is organized by Sevalanka Foundation in Sri Lanka. The Bangladeshi band “Lalon” will participate in the festival and a representative from LiveSquare will accompany the band.
This initiative hopes to provide people from different socio-economic backgrounds to get together to celebrate diversity through music and dance - folk, classical and contemporary.
