• Artist of the Month......

    27 Feb 2007, 03:32 by talkingmusic

    In January, Ruth Sahanaya was my artist of the month. Ruth, who will be touring again soon, had a new album, and she is one of the best female artists of Indonesia.

    In February it was time for Edsilia Rombley who was again selected to represent the Netherlands at the Eurovision Song Contest this year in Finland. She is a fanastic woman, a great performer and has a voice that is really warm and inspiring.

    So who is it going to be in March? It is again an Indonesian Diva....
    Though she often dresses awfully, like a little enfant terrible, she is one of the best songwriters/composers of Indonesia, with music composed for many of Indonesia's best movies like Ada Apa Dengan Cinta and Heart. Her recent succes with BBB brings her really into the spotlight to go international. She could have written this song for any succesful group like Steps or even for theVengaboys cause the sound is very European.

    Let's Dance Together (feat. BBB) is a great dance song…
  • Sound of silence

    Been away for almost 4 months.... Wow. Several reasons for that.
    First of all, lots of changes in work, address, busy with ISF2006, and I saw all these changes going on at last.fm that I had something of an attitude like 'wait and see'.
    My favorite internet cafe no longer had the option of using audioscrobblers, they simply blocked it, and others had no possibility to listen to music.

    This month I will get my OWN computer and will finally be able to play the music I like, tag things right, and create MY OWN charts. WOW. So it is sort of a new beginning.

    January begins definately for me withRuth Sahanaya who has been busy with new albums, one pop and one christmas album, and a small Christmas concert tour.

    I can't wait to listen to her songs!

    The second thing I am looking forward to is to listen to all these new songs related to the [event=]Eurovision Song Contest[/event] and to the [event=]ISF 2007[/event]
    I wish you all a Happy New Year, even though Pat Robertson has already predicted death and destruction for the second half of 2007. …
  • Tiga Diva's

    Dah ke konser Tiga Diva's? WOW! Saya orang belanda, tapi konser itu professional, dan mereka benar dengan nama Tiga Diva....walaupun....

    Kalo aku dengar Ruth Sahanaya dan Titi DJ, mereka artist vocal, suara bisa apa saja. Tapi kalo dengar KD, ehm, nga, tidak terlalu favoritku. KD cantik sekali, tapi musik KD, yah ada yang suka, ada yang tidak suka.
    Siapa favorit anda dari 3 Diva itu?

    The 3 Diva's concert was really something. I think that especially Ruth Sahanaya and Titi DJ have the right to call themselves a diva, in the right sense of the word. They perform magic with their voices, are vocal professionalists. I must say though that
    Kris Dayanti is very handsome, but her singing is just so-so. She can sing, don't worry. But I mean, she is not the professionalist like the two others. But that is just my opinion.

    Which of the 3 do you like most?

    I went back to Indonesia for a week to stay with my grandma and mom, and was exposed to these Indonesian bands:

    Peterpan
    Padi
    Slank
    The three divas - Kris Dayanti, Titi DJ, and Ruth Sahanaya...

    Don't particularly like any one of them.

    And the Indonesian Idol auditions were being held in Jakarta that week too. Amazing... I wonder if my friend still works for Fremantle and that particular show?
