From pop to dance, the fifth album by disco diva ROSSA may be her most diverse. The 28-year-old has evolved from singing children songs as she first did when growing up in West Java. The Sundanese beauty has been transfixed with singing since she first saw a microphone. Shortly thereafter her first album was completed at 10 years old. Music followed her (or vice versa) as she got older and by the time she was in high school she had put together an album for her teenage friends. The success of that work in 1996 helped convince her to pursue music professionally after studying communications at the University of Indonesia in Jakarta. "Kembali" is the product of a collaboration with some of the best in the business, including members of Element and Jikustik as well as Melly and Anto Hoed. The album went platinum soon after it was released in 2004 and still remains one of that year's best collections of love songs for the broken-hearted in need of a touch of inspiration.
