globesnail.com Some clips from backpacking around the countryside of Sri Lanka. I met the happiest people I've ever seen there. Mostly from the tea plantations and Adams peak. I think if people saw how joyful these people are, even though they are poor, people might change some of their values. Music: Vintersol. Song: Sleeping Lesson 1. Hope you liked the video! If you did, please share, thanks! Visit globesnail.com for more videos and posts. See you around!
Brief Introduction to Sri Lanka- Including historical info., main language, main religion, main ethnicities, and places to visit.
The 'Kaffirs' of Sri Lanka started arriving from the eastern shores of Africa in the 1500s with the Portuguese, and later in more waves with the different colonizers of Sri Lanka. 'Kaffir culture' is a video portrait of one such community of Kaffirs and the struggle to keep their culture alive in the face of falling numbers. Written and produced by Kannan Arunasalam. Music by Ceylon Kaffir Manja, arranged by Jesse Hardman.
