A television and radio broadcaster, who is also included in the list of notable individuals from the island Sri Lanka. Vijaya Corea, is widely recognized as a pioneer in the introduction of Sinhala pop music at Ceylon radio and the English services. Corea played an exclusive role in spotting gifted musicians and providing them with a venue for their talents, thus opening doors for them to build their careers and livelihoods.
