Dinelka, born in Matara, Sri Lanka and currently based in Colombo, is an experimental musician who crafts extraordinary aural experiences through minimal and ambient sounds. He is inspired by the social scenarios in his country, but never allows them to limit or restrict his process. His earliest influence in art and classical music came from his mother, a traditional dancer. However, it was his philosophical quest of discovering his own individuality that led him to exploring his artistic expression. At 16, he first started experimenting with beats and kick patterns. After years of exploring a ‘hard’ experimental sound, he found his voice in ambient-minimal tones. Dinelka released his first experimental VA with Psychosomatic Records run by Marco Blazquize alongside artists like Stekke, Max Anderson and Doneck.
