VoT hosts Jaffna cultural show

[TamilNet, Monday, 17 June 2002, 10:07 GMT]
Thousands of Tamils in Jaffna gathered Sunday for a cultural performance put on by the Arts & Culture section of the Liberation Tigers, in the first such event in seven years, the Uthayan newspaper reported. The 'Muththamil Kalai Arangam' road show took place at Nallur's Ilam Kalaignar Hall and was presented by the 'Voice of Tigers' radio.

The Voice of Tigers radio has been running the show on a monthly basis after its inception two years ago to mark the radio's tenth anniversary. The first eighteen events had been held in the Vanni mainland.

The 19th show in Jaffna began at 7 pm and ran for four hours. Many artistes and presenters of the radio travelled from Vanni to present the show in Nallur, the Uthayan reported.

Mr Kannathasan, brother of a fallen LTTE fighter and an mrithangam artiste and Mr Mahalingam, father of another LTTE fighter, lit a traditional lamp to inaugurate the evening's entertainment, the paper said.

Arul Nila, of Nietharsanam TV, hoisted the Tamil national flag. Mr. Paapaa, a senior representative of the LTTE's political section and Mullaitivu district chief health officer, Dr T. Jeyakularajah, gave special addresses. Flute music, dances and drama followed.
