Rhythm Presents | COSMIC JUNGLE VIBES
Cosmic Jungle Vibes in Ceylon
A cosmic melting pot of color, sound, and smell greets you upon arrival to the tear shaped island off the south coast of India. The sensory overload is intense to say the least, however unlike many destinations this side of the equator, Sri Lankan’s maintain a undeniable dignified and calm demeanor, making one feel instantly at home.
I am staying in Ahangama, on the south coast. It’s one of three or four towns that act as the epicenter for this coast’s surf season, which runs from November through April. Working for a surf and Yoga retreat called Sunshine Stories, life is simple. We operate from an old colonial villa set back in the jungle, away from the hustle, and noise that comes with the sea front. It’s very different, but very amazing.
The waves are consistent, the water is warm, and the people humble yet friendly. The people are what amaze me most, both local, and stranger. We had the privilege to host The Neverland Boys, a group from Australia who came, and enjoyed the jungle with us for a week.
These pictures are taken and this video is filmed between Weligama and Hikkaduwa and are captured on 35mm and digital by the following; Peter Adams, Petter Toremalm, Sunshinestories and The Neverland Boys.
They capture the cosmic jungle vibes we live day to day.
