(The Story of the Red Ribbon Girl)
Dua Empat are Alvin Ghazalie and Misi Lezar (guitars), and Nesia is one of four singers on Dua Empat’s album. The others are Almira Joesoef, Cantika Abigail and Marini Nainggolan.
Alvin and Misi are both graduates from the Conservatory of Music in University Pelita Hapapan. Their soon to be released album features songs about the journey they’ve experienced together as musicians, as students,and their own relationship. Their compositions tell a story about love, hope, joy, and happiness, with their guitar accompaniment inspired by such jazz giants as Wes Montgomery and Russell Malone.
