“I dreamed of an international career, but the American and English record companies weren’t going to come to Indonesia looking for a new talent, when there is so much available in their own countries. So, I had to bring my talent to the West.”-says Anggun.
The talented singer, Anggun Cipta Sasmi, was born in Indonesia. Her name means “A grace born out of a dream” which is definitely a true statement about this remarkable singer.
Anggun left Indonesia in 1995 and started her singing career in France, where she recorded her first french album, in 1996 ,called Au Nom de la Lune. In 2005 she released her new last album Luminescence. Her first single from the French album is Etre Une Femme and the second single Cesse La Pluie (translated as Saviour) was featured in the film “Transporter II”
Today, Anggun has sold about 3 million copies of records worldwide and has become the most successful Asian artist outside Asia; she is particularly well known in Europe .
Anggun has been involved with several charities and received several awards such as “Best International Artist” at 2006 Indonesian Music Awards.
As I heard from my sources, Anggun is working her way over to make it big in America so keep a look out!
