Fenty Effendy is the Indonesian singer who begins her career at13 years old in 1965. A television pruducer find her singing in Kota Bandung, and brought her to perform in TVRI firstly on March 1965 with a band Quartet Eka Djaja under direction Rudi Rosadi. After that first television show, publisher Irama, the leading recording company which publish such Oslan Hussain reputation, recorded Fenty Effendy’s album entitled “Paturaj”.
There are 12 songs: Harapan Ibu (Fenty effendi), Paturaj (Kosaman Djaja), Sarinah (Rudi Rosadi), Naik Kelas (F Rorimpandey), Relakan Aku (F Rorympandey), Sapu Njere Pegat Simpaj (Sambas), Historia D’an Amor, Hari Gembira (A. Salis), Tanpa daksa (Mang koko), bandung Selatan di waktu malam (Ismail marzuki), Burung merpati (Kosaman Djaja), dan Tidurlah Adikku (Fenty effendy).
I am not familiar with Fenty Effendy, but this album is collectable, for some reasons:
1. The band Medenasz under direction Dimas Wahab is the popular name, especially Dimas Wahab is the man behind the success of Yanti bersaudara.
2. There are songs composed by some leading composers such as ismail Marzuki, Sambas, mang Koko and so on.
3. The music and arrangement are well-crafted.
4. The quality of the sound and recording is superb.
I post this album to day, to celebrate KPMI, the community of Indonesian music lovers, which celebrate the 5 anniversary. This organisation has a deep concern to the recorded Indonesian musics. *
