rhythm world Onstage

OnstagearticleIn keeping with this tradition of supporting all forms of talent, the network’s Sinhala language station Rhythm World launched its own installment of Onstage, aiming to discover the country’s next big local band.

During an application period of one month, Rhythm World accepted video applications from bands across the country and the top 50 bands were selected. A judging panel of esteemed local musicians and industry professionals were then tasked with selecting the top 20 participants of the competition during a closed door session, on the basis of the video applications submitted. The top 20 then performed across 4 preliminary rounds, which were live streamed from the TNL RN studios, and the panel narrowed it down to the top 10 participants to go on to the semifinal rounds. The final 5 performed to a massive crowd in order to win prizes as well as fame and glory.

2016 marked the beginning of a music revolution that is only going to get bigger and better as we bring original local talent to the fore.
