Popular yester-year songstress Indrani Wijebandara (Senaratne) passed away this afternoon at the National Hospital in Colombo at the age of 83, family sources said.

Indrani, who married Sisira Senaratne in May 1962, will be remembered for her evergreen songs like Gaya Geethayan Game Wel Eliye, Budu Samine, Vesak Kekulu, Sudupata Mal, Sandapane Mal Pipuna, Sujatha, Oba Gathin Ma Langai, Dhammi Thawamath Adarei and others.

She sang for almost 40 Sinhala films and held the ‘Sisindra’ concert in several countries together with Sisira. She was the mother of Subhani, Sanjaya and Samira. Funeral arrangements will be notified later.
