At the turn of the present century, the Sri Lankan ambassador in France was Professor Senake Bandaranayake, an archaeologist specializing in the fort on the enormous Sigiriya Lion Rock fortress. Thanks to his friend, Singhalese film director Nimal de Silva, he discovered Sylvie Jouffa’s photographic work in Asia and which covered over thirty years and of the many ethno musical discs, recorded on the spot by François Jouffa, stretching from Nepal to Korea, including other countries such as Burma and Vietnam. In particular, the professor listened to Jouffa’s recordings when, in Sri Lanka (Ceylon), he directed his movie “La Bonzesse” in 1973. Several LPs, and then CDs, taken from the soundtrack immortalized ‘the magic drums’ played by the island’s healers at that time. As their art was disappearing, the professor and ambassador believed it necessary to rapidly capture the styles and talent of these last great masters. The music lover Ajita de Costa, President of the Heritage Foundation for the Environment and Arts, agreed to organize recording sessions in the musicians’ own villages. In Paris, Ms. Dileeni R. de Alwis Perera (DPDJ International) and in Colombo, Ms. Manisha Gunasekera from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs realized the project. We would like to thank all those who collaborated.In order to respect these ancestral musics, François Jouffa preferred working with his good old Nagra IV S analog tape recorder. In today’s world of perfect but cold digital sound, these traditional pieces have retained their warmth, color and original resonance, which will appeal to connoisseurs.Patrick FRÉMEAUX© 2014 GROUPE FRÉMEAUX COLOMBINI SASThe recording was held on Wednesday 6 March 2002, in the heart of the jungle of Sigiriya which shelters creatures including monkeys and wild elephants, after 10 am (for the ‘morning ragas’).  This jungle is surrounding the Lion Rock (“Sigiriya”) on top of which a palace was built in the fifth century AD. It is decorated by breathtaking frescoes (photo cover) representing the Apsaras sacred courtesans. Name of orchestra: Satsara Samadhi, meaning ‘Meditation on 7 notes’ (Satsara: 7 notes, Samadhi: meditation).- Master Harold Madapatha Rodrigo was born on 10 October 1930 in Badulla, Sri Lanka, or Ceylon as it was then called. After studying oriental music, he became a music teacher at the Ampitiya School in the holy town of Kandy where he taught from 1953 to 1990. Once retired, he continued giving lessons in Sigiriya’s Central College where the pupils treated him as a guru. He sometimes played with his three sons, all musicians and the eldest is a member of the police bands in Colombo and Kandy. Master Rodrigo plays the sitar, violin and mandolin.- Namal Rodrigo, the master’s second son, was born on 26 August 1967 in Kandy. He plays all instruments, but mainly the serpina (harmonium), violin, mandolin, banjo and tabla (a percussion instrument). He is also the lead singer of his father’s band.- Chamila Maldeniya was born on 8 April 1979 in Sigiriya. She began her training with Master Rodrigo in 1994. Two years later, she was awarded the Gold Medal in the Sri Lankan university contest playing the esraj, a kind of sarangi, an instrument from the Northeast India. In 1997, she came second in a national contest for those under the age of 37, despite the fact that music teachers also participated. She is also a worthy singer.- Mangala Ratnayake was born on 18 October 1979 in Sigiriya. He plays the udekki tabla, a small drum from Sri Lanka, and also sings.- Palitha Pathmasiri was born on 24 October 1981 in Sigiriya. He sings and plays the serpina (harmonium), pantheruwa (Sri Lankan tambourine) and thala-pota (small cymbals).- Sumudu Chaturanga was born on 25 September 1981 in Sigiriya. He also sings and plays the serpina (harmonium).Interpreter: Nilantha B. Herath, environnementalist of the Sigiriya village.This CD consists of 13 pieces, lasting 51 minutes and 30 seconds.1. Gajama Wannama. 2’50Gaja is the name of the elephant. This music, that gives homage to the proud strut of the elephant and his majestic stride, is performed at each Festival of Kandy during the month of August. The elephants in the procession, wearing luxurious ornaments, both colored and sparkling, move forward to the rhythm of this music.2. Jana Gee. 3’34Jana represents the people and gee is a song.  It is actually a work song from Ceylonese folklore.  While working hard, we long for release from fatigue.3. Senkadagala Pura. 3’56Senkadagala is the historic name of the city (pura) of Kandy.  It recalls the fairy tale history of heroes and heroines who roamed the city in an age long gone. 4. Ratna Deepa. 4’17 This is another name for Sri Lanka: the island (deepa) of precious stones (ratna).5. Lanka Lanka Wadanaya. 3’19This instrumental (wadanaya) selection is a heartfelt and enthusiastic hymn to the motherland. Listen to the track #11 for the vocal version.6. Brindabanee Sarangi. 6’13A beautiful and joyful morning raga.  According to The Mahâbhârata, the Sanskrit epic, the God Krishna spent his youth in Brindavana, a forest in the real Uttar Pradesh of India.7. Jaya Sri Ma Bodhi. 4’14The Bodhi Tree, also known as Bo in Tamil and in Sinhalese, is the Sacred Fig tree (Ficus religiosa) of Buddhism. Siddhartha Gautama, known later on as Gautama Buddha, achieved enlightenment under the heart shaped leaves of this tree, at Bodh Gaya in India. At least one Bodhi Tree is planted near each Buddhist monastery.  8. Senkadagala Sri Dalada. 4’07In the city of Kandy, the ancient city of Senkadagala, can be found the venerable Sri Dalada Maligawa, The Temple of the Tooth Relic of Buddha.9. Edithara Helayan. 3’32Edithara recalls the brave and helayan means the Sri Lankans.10. Muhudu Pathula Yata. 3’46Muhudu is the sea, pathula, its depth, and yata, under the sea, its danger. This song, with theatrical lyrics, is generally performed by a mother for her daughter, in order to acquaint her with the dangerous life of the fishermen, such as the little girl’s father.11. Lanka Lanka. 3’35Vocal version of the hymn. For the instrumental version of this song, you may listen again to the track #5.12. Dakuna Negenahira Gayana. 3’15Dakuna signifies the south, negenahira, the east, and gayana, movement. Reference to the four cardinal directions of the island elicits the hope that, one day soon, the entire country will be united under a single flag.13. Olu Pipila. 4’21This love song celebrates nature. The lotus (olu) germinates in the mud before the magnificent flowers bloom (pipila).Production and recordings (March 2002) in Sigiriya, Sri Lanka: François Jouffa.Recorded on BASF tapes with a Nagra IV-Stereo and two Sennheiser MKH 416T microphones.Editing and mastering in Paris, France: Laurent Yonker (Studio Trigone).Photos: Sylvie Jouffa (Nikon FE2).Liner notes: François Jouffa (with a little help from Dileeni R. de Alwis Perera).

- « Les délicats motifs mélodiques de cette musique » par Mondomix
Hommages aux pas de l’éléphant, célébration du figuier sous lequel Bouddha atteignit l’illumination, récit des dangers de la vie sur les mers… Ces chansons séculaires, transmises de la bouche à l’oreille sur l’île de Ceylan (Sri Lanka depuis 1972), ont été captées sur bande magnétique par le journaliste et ethnomusicologue François Jouffa en 2002, à la demande du gouvernement du pays, qui craignait de les voir disparaître. Jouffa a veillé à respecter le contexte de la musique : l’enregistrement a eu lieu in situ, dans les villages avoisinant un antique palais royal creusé dans un gigantesque rocher, le tout entouré d’une jungle où s’ébrouent singe et éléphant. L’heure ne doit également rien au hasard : 10 heures, un créneau « bénéfique pour les ragas du matin », écrit-il dans les notes de pochette. Ce sont les courses parallèles d’un violon, d’un sitar et d’une mandoline, ponctuées de tambour et de cloches, qui ouvrent le bal et révèlent les délicats motifs mélodiques de cette musique où l’influence de l’Inde se fait sentir, jusque dans l’instrumentation, avec la présence de l’esraj (12 ou 15 cordes). Mélodies vocales et instrumentales convolent souvent de concert, l’une épousant scrupuleusement les contours de l’autre dans ses élévations, ses descentes, ses cheminements aux nombreux méandres qui mènent à une émotion pudique. C’est le maître-gourou alors septuagénaire Harold Madapatha Rodrigo, expert es mandoline, violon et sitar, qui dirige l’orchestre Statsara Samadhi (« la méditation des sept notes »), épaulé par son fils Namal au chant et à l’harmonium serpina, la jeune Chamila Maldeniya aux harmonies vocales et à l’esraj, ainsi que par trois percussionnistes. La plus belle pièce de cette précieuse collection est certainement Brindabanee Sarangi, un raga du matin dont les thèmes gonflent, se brisent et se succèdent comme les rouleaux sur la mer, de plus en plus rapidement et sans jamais se départir d’une sérénité lancinante.
