Tam: நிலாவெளி nilāveḷi – Sin: නිලාවැලි nilāvæli
‘Moonlit Land’ EP, Sri Lanka
From Tam: nilā ‘moonlight’; and veḷi, ‘open space’, ‘expanse’
Nilaveli has an enviably long and pristine beach which is undoubtedly even more awesome when lit up by a full moon.
Channels here pump seawater into salt pans ready for harvesting in the dry season.
