The Sri Guitar Jam is a multi-culturally and diverse project uniting the foremost Sri Lankan guitarists from around the world as a collective. Sri Guitar Jam is special for a myriad of reasons. It is the first time something of such scope and magnitude has been conceptualized and brought to life. The idea for it originated and was given wings by Tennyson Napoleon, the guitarist and co-founder of Stigmata during lockdown, as a means to unite guitarists and bassists of all genres and styles to partake and collaborate on an epic musical journey unlike anything heard or seen before. Sri Guitar Jam comprises of a star-studded line-up of musicians; veterans and household sensations intertwined with new blood and young rising talent, all of Lankan origin from around the globe.
The first chapter of this momentous concept is titled Lemuria; inspired by a long lost continent fabled to have been a civilization so advanced that it was rich with music, architecture, medicine, philosophy, sculpture, art, alchemy, magic, poetry and mathematics. Lemuria also known as Kumari Kandam is believed to have been located South of India in present day Sri Lanka.
The first chapter: Lemuria is broken down into 4 expansive and elaborate volumes.
Volume I – OM: Emanate Previously released on 30 Oct 2020
Volume II – Lemuria: The Cradle of Civilization – latest release

Volume IV – Rebirth: Utopia
What started as a very ambitious project for and in the name of Guitar inspired music has grown into something so monumental that over 60 Guitarists; Ladies and Gents have now joined to be a part of this milestone project.
