A trio of sisters from Kuantan, Pahang, their instruments are the violin, keys and vocals. They are currently based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Jiwang debuted their showcase at Sofar Sounds Singapore in February 2019, and their debut Malaysian show was at The Bee the same year. Think of them as a live acoustic jukebox playing Pop, R&B and Folk songs from the past. Their goal is to bring back nostalgic, romantic music in their own Jiwang, stripped-down renditions. However, they are also currently in the midst of recording their original songs.

Born and raised in Petaling Jaya, 25 year old singer songwriter Ili Ruzanna went on stage for the 1st time with her dad at 12 years old. Being self-taught playing the ukelele and piano, she started writing her first song at 20. A huge part of her influence in music is indie pop music. She performed everywhere from corporate events, to weddings, to local tv performance like Borak Kopitiam and Malaysia Hari Ini. She was always afraid to express herself through music, but not anymore. Her vision is to tell her own stories through her music and remind people that no one's really alone in a particular situation.
