Titiek Puspa – Doa Ibu

This cool record was made in Indonesia, 1966. All tracks are composed by Puspa herself. There are some indigenous sounding songs, some soft r&b and a couple of jazz songs. I particularly like the track Lagu Untukmu a lot. It sounds like an exotic version of Nina Simone, sung with a deep voice and with nice interludes. I thought this record would be pretty obscure but a quick search reveales Titiek Puspa was actually one of the most popular Indonesian singers. But do you ever see this record?
