Milton Mallawarachchi (1944–1998) was a popular Sri Lankan musician.
Mallawarachchi sang songs by Karunaratne Abeysekera, K. D. K. Dharmawardena, Premakirthi de Alwis, Clarence Wijewardena, Upali Danawalawithana, Dharmasiri Gamage, Ajantha Ransinghe, Shelton Weeraratne, Kularatne Ariyawansa, Ananda Padmasiri, Vernon Perera, Chitrananda Abeysekera, Bandara Wijetunga and Vijaya Ramanayake.
Music composer Patrick Denipitiya gave Milton Mallawarachichi’s songs such as “Ivuru Tala”, “Ma ha Eda” and “Ma Nisa Oba” a modern touch. The song “Sayura theredhi” helped him to become a huge success.
His first duet – “Bindu Bindu” – was sung with R.Chitra. In 1974, the Ceylonese musician Clarence Wijewardena composed the songs “Gana Andure,” “Eda Rae,” “Mata Men Ohutada” and “Maga Thotadhii” for an EP release on Gemstone. Wijewardena also wrote “Awasara Natha Mata,” “Sulange Pawe,” “Thaniwi Sitinai” and “Prem Raja Dahane” for Mallawarachichi.
