Full Biography of Singer Santhan

Singer Santhan was the chief singer of liberation struggle songs during the LTTE Period.  He excelled himself not only in Singing but also in acting. He was greatly felicitated for his acting in the Arichchanthra Mayana Kandam. His artistic life commenced with a chance he got for singing Maruthamalai Mamaniye Murugaiah at the Kathiresan Temple at Cheddi Theru.

He joined the Kannan Music Group in 1977 and later started his own group Santhan Music Group. He had sung hundreds of songs during the Tamil Eelam Liberation struggle, especially the commemorative songs for the Maveerars. The song “Intha mann engalin Sontha Mann” (Itha Maan Engalin Sontha Maan: "இந்த மண் எண்களின் சொந்த மண்") is the most popular song he had sung.

Surrendered to the Army at the end of the Sri Lankan Civil war 2009, he  was released by the Army in a mentally and physically debilitated state.  However he revived his activities in the music sector singing devotional songs.
