Dr. Tanya Ekanayaka is one of Sri Lanka's most distinguished classically trained pianists. She is also a composer and musicologist in addition to being a highly qualified linguist.

Consistent with her interdisciplinary background, Tanya holds a Bachelor of Arts Honors degree in English literature and linguistics from the University of Peradeniya, a Master of Science degree in linguistics and English language from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland, and a doctorate for interdisciplinary research involving the disciplines of linguistics and musicology also from Edinburgh University.
