Lakshman Joseph de Saram
Artistic Director

Lakshman Joseph de Saram is a Sri Lanka-based, international classical musician and film composer. A veteran of over 800 concerts, he made his debut performing the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto at the age of thirteen. In addition to being one of the premier violinists that Sri Lanka has produced, he is also adept at the trombone.

Schooled in New York City, he is best known internationally as the composer who defined the "Nouvelle Vogue" sound of South Asian art-house cinema with the ground-breaking scores to many global award-winning films.

His critically acclaimed Hollywood film  "Bel Ami" (2011) with big-name stars, makes him one of a few Asian born creative heads operating on that platform. He recently completed the score for "With You, Without You", which had its world première at the Montreal Film Festival in August 2012. He is currently working on two international productions.

Joseph de Saram is also on the guest faculty of the University of Visual and Performing Arts, teaching chamber music.
