Sri Lanka’s identity is vast and fluctuating. It is a culmination of everyone who has come and gone, built and contributed to the nation, that it is today. Yet, not many people are aware of the various ethnicities and communities that live, lived and continue to live in this island nation. Several years ago, Roar Media wrote a series of articles about the multitude of ethnic minorities that made up the country’s population; we interviewed the descendants of Parsis, tasted the food invented by the Malays and danced to the rhythms of Portuguese Baila. Our very language has assimilated many foreign words that we have come to know and love, traditions that we have embraced as our own. Here, we collect ten great pieces from the series of the other two percent that make up Sri Lanka’s population.
