Episode 12: Levi Gunardi on Classical Music


Equinox DMD currently has over 120 albums and 1300 tracks live on iTunes. Since we started selling in January this year, one artist has consistently held the number one spot. No, it's not peterpan and not Dewa. It is Levi Gunardi, a 29-year old classical pianist from Indonesia. His rendition of Liszt' Hungarian Rhapsody II has proven to be a top seller and we are taking a break from the indie music scene to present Levi in a very special podcast featuring classical music. Enjoy. 15:18, 8.9 MB
