Biography

Jakarta, Indonesia (1986 – present)

Anggun (born Anggun Cipta Sasmi on April 29, 1974 in Jakarta) is an Indonesian singer-songwriter.

She started singing in 1986. Her father, Darto Singo, was a famous singer and producer in Indonesia and Anggun decided to follow in her father’s footsteps. At the tender age of 7 years she recorded her first album with children’s song.

At 12, after becoming interested in rock music, she recorded her second heavily rock influenced album, “Dunia Aku Punya”, that in the indonesian language mean “World of mine”. This album became very popular and she became a megastar in East Asia. Having already had tremendous success in her homeland Indonesia, she decided to pursue an international career and left Indonesia in 1995, when she was only 19.

She settled in Paris, France and met producer Erick Benzi, who later helped her sign a record deal with Sony Music France and recorded her first French album, Au Nom De La Lune, in 1996. The album was released in 1997 and spawned a hit single, “La neige au Sahara”. She re-recorded the album in English and it produced her biggest worldwide hit single to date, “Snow On The Sahara.” The album has been released in 33 countries across the world, including the US.

To date, Anggun has sold approximately 3 million copies of records worldwide and has become the most successful Asian artist outside Asia. Her success has spread throughout Europe, particularly in France and Italy.
