JAKARTA: The group SIMPONI has won the '€œSounds of Freedom Award'€ organized by London-based band One Law for All, for its song '€œSister in Danger'€.

'€œWe dedicate the song to the victims of sexual violence in Indonesia and the world, as well as the activists promoting gender justice,'€ band manager M. Berkah Gamulya said in a statement on Monday.

SIMPONI, short for Sindikat Musik Penghuni Bumi ( Syndicate of Music of the Earth Habitants ) also received points for giving free concerts at schools and universities to promote gender justice and awareness of sexual violence.

The band comprises vocalist Rendy Ahmad ( left ) and drummer Teuku Khaiqal ( both currently appearing on screen in Garuda 19 ), guitarists Bayu Agni and Sakti Sanjaya, and bassist Rama Prayudha.
