This is an album of Indonesian pop with gamelan influences and elements of Latin and other music added to the mixture. 13 tracks of various medleys of well known Indonesian songs from all over the country.
KRIS DAYANTI, RUTH SAHANAYA & TITI DJ
Blimey. From 3 Italian Tenors to 3 Indonesian Divas. This project has been a runaway success in Indonesia and Malaysia. Three of Indonesia's most popular female vocalists, Kris Dayanti, Ruth Sahanaya and Titi DJ sing a mix of 'traditional', dangdut, r&b and pop with an orchestral backing. The quality of their singing is undeniable and can probably put their western counterparts in the shade. Not however for you, if you prefer your music with something more authentically Indonesian.
Best of Early Days
Indonesian singer Anggun has become known in Europe, especially France, for her smooth romantic ballads sung in French, English and (very occasionally) Indonesian. It wasn't always like this though. At the beginning of the 90s, before she had ventured outside Indonesia, she recorded a series of fairly rocky albums, such as Tua Tua Keladi, Anak Putih Abu Abu and Noc Turno. This Indonesian album features some of the hits from those albums released originally between 1990 and 92.
Compilation of the greatest hits from one of Indonesia's finest dangdut singers. Features her trademark unusual backing for dangdut of acoustic guitar and piano and her soft whispering style of singing.
Compilation of Malaysian and Indonesian pop from Malaysia's Suria Records. Artists include Malaysia's female singers Siti Nurhaliza, Liza Hanim and Anis Suraya, with previously unreleased tracks, and from Indonesia one of the most popular female singers Rossa and the pop rock band from Bandung, Peterpan.
It is one of the least represented areas in 'World Music', nevertheless East Asia and Indonesia in particular is home to some of the world's most vibrant musical traditions. Veteran female singing star Waldjinah breathes new life into a selection of contemporary classics with the help of a cast of talented musicians from Japan, Malaysia and Brazil to create a truly groundbreaking album of contemporary Oriental roots music.
HETTY KOES ENDANG
