Hey everybody! I'd like to have your input on something, Indonesian people in particular (but bule's opinion welcome!). It will take a few minutes of your time and can be very useful for me... so there it is: Who's your favorite Indonesian singer, male and female, and your favorite Indonesian band. And the most important: why? The voice? How they sound? How they look? A song in particular? What do you like? Thanks buddies.

I like Anggun, her voice is sexy and unique. Most of her songs did tell me stories. When it comes to group band, I like Dewa 19 and Peterpan.

What about you? You haven't put your opinion yet.

What images do you have then regarding belly dance? I have heard that in Canada, there are lot of belly dancer and some of them are profs. Have a plan to make a performance in Dec, if you are or anyone is interested, do come. Still a plan though but this time men are allowed to see.

Oh, your job somewhat in music showbiz? That's cool. What do you play?

It's a real bizarre thing about Indonesian music. You can go to a few places, particularly BB's in Menteng, and see some outrageously talented musicians and bands. But these guys and gals never make it, as far as mass popularity. The ones that do are just utter and total crap, and so boring it's just nauseating. It's a bit like that Europe in N. America with probably more than 50% of all groups (like the boy bands and girl bands etc, etc.) but on the other hand you have some serious quality people that really make it big time like Alicia Keys and Waylon Jennings.

Ok, Bonita... belly dance, I'd like yo see that! Let me know about it... And yes I'm in showbiz, retired guitar player (get bored with the bar, hotel and casino gigs) and actually songwriter, producer and publisher. That's why I want input from you, Indo people, about what's hot or not.
And because you asked before, my favorite singer is definitively Marcell. Not that I'm a big fan of his musical style, but vocaly, his is simply the best. Perfect control of his voice, a "tone", feeling and soul that nobody else here have. After Anggun, he have the potencial to become internationnal. I just hope the chairmen in Warner realize that.
And for the band, well, I have a big deception about Indo band; there's only one hit song per album. The other songs are so common... Why buying the CD only for one song??? That's why I'll go with Ada Band. In particular for their album "Heaven of love". To me, it's a MUST HAVE. If you don't already have it, run to the record store and buy it (no piracy, PLEASE!!!). There's at least 4 excellent songs on this album. And the singer have a great voice too. The keyboardist is a real hit maker. Of course, every band have their weakness; the guitar player is not that hot and quality of the production is very poor... but if you're not an audiophile, you will not hear the difference with other albums...
So that's my opinion!
Thanks to everybody who replied and talked to this topic to your friends!
