Mariazelle Goonetilleke is a Sri Lankan singer and musician. She has performed not only in Sri Lanka but also as far as the United Kingdom, the United States, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore and Australia.
Mariazelle has performed songs in a wide range of musical genres from western pop music to Sri Lankan Baila. She is now well known as a leading Baila singer, performing her massive hit “Kandy Lamissi”, all over the world. American Fulbright Scholar, Vasana Kelum de Mel, from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) said, “Since I feel it is an essential issue to study the ‘gender Baila’ as well, the work of the female Baila singers like Mariazelle Goonetilleke and Corinne Almeida should also be appreciated.”
She has also collaborated with some of Sri Lanka’s top musicians, among them: Sunil Perera of the Gypsies, M.S. Fernando, Dalreen Suby, Clarence Wijewardena, Annesley Malewana, Damian Wickramatilleke, Maxi Rozairo, Shanelle Fernando, Umara Sinhawansa, Ashanthi De Alwis and Raj Seneviratne.
