The season of Idul Fitri is actually also a moment for party and festival. So it is also a moment for musical celebration. In this season, it is a smart idea to release an album with Idul Fitri as a subject. This was what have done by Elfa Singers with an album entitled Lebaran (Team record, 1990), Dwiki Dharmawan with an album Tembang Lebaran (Sony Music, 1999), and a group called Samba Sunda with an album Takbiran (Gema Nada Pertiwi, 2000).
Elfa Singer’s album is an other success of Lebaran song, as preceded by Oslan Hussein and Ismail Marzuki. Song Selamat Hari Lebaran by Elfa is truly as melodious as Oslan Husein’s and Ismail Marzuki’s version. But off course, Elfa’s song is sounded modern. Please play these abums in this season. Happy Idul Fitri, all dear moslems. *
