  1. Thanks Narme for posting this patriotic song. Its a beautiful adaptation of the original song titled “I call Australia home” written & performed by Peter Allen in 1980 & much later qantas used for their ads as well


  2. Thanks Narme for sharing this clip.As Abey writes, the song is a translation of the Australian anthem to a call for all Sri Lankans to return home.?.Australia has many songs that stir the soul, another is “Sydney 2000”, which I like very much..Alston is a talented actor as well.He appeared in “According to Matthew ” as Matthew Peiris.!Alston has been promoting Sri Lanka for quite sometime although he calls, Australia his home.! In the clip, in the audience and in the front row are RW & RK, a reminder of passed missed opportunities.!l


  3. Thanks Narme.
    Nice to hear the modified version of the Late Peter Allen’s song sung by the talented Alston Koch. ( Any relationship to Prof Koch?)


  4. Dear Narme and Abey, Thanks for sharing Alston Koch’s song.. Brought tears to my eyes as usually happens when I listen to music about SL! I know it s Australian, but he makes it sound so SriLankan!


  5. Dear Narme,
    Thank you. Very nostalgic.
    Makes me wonder what the hell am I doing here in Durham.
    Thanks again,
