After releasing an album with the theme of women’s emancipation in 2010, Oppie Andaresta is back again with Dengan Hati Senang. Released in April 2011, this newest composition is quite easy listening and more radio-friendly compared to the last offering. As Oppie puts it, “Wider segment: commercial-oriented, more footlose-and-fancy-free.”
The album, with “Mau Have Fun” as the first single, consist of nine songs which talks mostly about daily life and social issues. In “Matahariku”, for instance, she sings about her beloved husband (without him even realizing it), while “Jangan Bedakan (Ayah Bunda)” points at the distorted relationship between parents and their children.
Despite the photos that expressing her more “modern” look, the ambassador of Peduli Perempuan (women’s rights), has asserted that she’s still the same Oppie inside. The urban cosmopolitan look is only a fun experiment initiated by her photographer. She’s not into manufactured images, she’s still into simple and natural images, just as she’s always been.
Currently, Oppie is busy promoting Dengan Hati Senang to the radios around big cities in Indonesia with a tour following in July.
