Angampora: A Nation’s Legacy In Pictures

Angampora: A Nation’s Legacy in Pictures

Four years in the making, Angampora: A Nation’s Legacy in Pictures is an ambitious attempt to help revive awareness of Sri Lanka’s dying ancient martial art. This book promises to be an unparalleled work of Sri Lankan photography and socio-cultural research.

The art of Angampora has gradually resurfaced in Sri Lanka after retreating to secrecy for centuries since being outlawed by the British colonial authorities in 1818. Bound to secrecy, traditional practitioners are now coming out of the shadows in an effort to ensure the art is protected for generations to come.

In 400 pages of stunning photographic detail, the complete story of an ancient art will be told for the first time to the world. Angampora: A Nation’s Legacy will cover the ancient origins of the art, its secret combat techniques, its undocumented traditional rituals, and the mysteries of its exotic supernatural practices.
