Lankan takes ‘Kolaveri di’ to another level

The Tamil hit song ‘Kolaveri di’ has become a hit in India and Sri Lanka thanks to its catchy beat and words.

Now a Sri Lankan born British singer Arjun Coomaraswamy has released an English remix of the track in London and it has reached almost 2 million hits on YouTube.

The English version of ‘Kolaveri di’ has been named ‘How Could you do this to me’ and it has become one of the most viewed songs by an independent South Asian artiste.

Arjun recently performed a live acoustic version of the track on BBC Radio1 hosted by another British with Sri Lankan roots, DJ Nihal.

Before the success of this video, he has slowly been building a fan base in the UK with live radio & TV interviews and performances at festivals.

He has also made it into the second round of a popular MTV competition for unsigned artistes. (
