PASSION OF INDONESIA WITH ALICE LEONZ & RONGGOWISNU 12/21/2013

Alice Leonz is a singer & songwriter involved in many music collaboration projects with musicians from around the world. Besides working as a recording artist, she also performs in many venues and music festivals in Indonesia. Ronggowisnu is a songwriter, composer and arranger. At a very young age, Ron was introduced to classical electone and classical guitar. As a teen, he was influenced by the 90’s glam rock and heavy metal. During his college years he concentrated on studying jazz piano and keyboard, with Riza Arshad, one of Indonesia’s famous jazz musicians.Alice and Ron may be a world away but they are very much a part of the music scene in many countries, cultivating and nurturing relationships with other musicians via the internet and social media to create musical projects that are unique and unlike any other you may have heard.

This couple is not afraid to tackle any project or musical challenge. Always thinking of ways to give back to the community, Alice and Ron joined the organization “Passion of Indonesia.”  POI has been in existence and helping the poor and the needy for 7 years by feeding, clothing, tutoring and offering medical assistance to areas of Jakarta, Kupang, Rote and Bali.

It was inevitable for this entrepreneur couple to find ways to help their country meet the needs of people who are displaced in slums, living by railroads or begging for food and money. “Sweet Christmas” album was born out of the need to give back to the Community. With a concept in mind and a few good friends to lend a hand, the project was completed in time for all the fans to enjoy Sweet Christmas melody with our families and at the same time giving back to people around the world who are in absolute poverty.
