This is the best album of Elvy Sukaeshi, the No.1 female singer of "Danduut", the emerging dance music in Indonesia invented by Oma Irama in the 1970s, released in 1985. The album contains a total of 10 tropical songs with a unique and pleasant percussion rhythm, a cheap synthesizer melody, and Elvy Sukaeshi's lustrous and sexy vocals. It also has a somewhat Arabic melody that is unique to Muslim countries. The album includes a commentary by Toyo Nakamura, who has popularized world music in Japan through his music reviews for Music Magazine.
