Irma Pane's West Coast Distributor in the U.S:
For all information about Distributions and Promotions
of my new album "Haruskah", please contact :
Irma Pane Volume I was recorded in 1977 with Purnama Records
in Jakarta and was very successful, reaching the Top 10 chart
of Indonesia; one number from the album reached the second
spot and another the fifth.
Irma Pane's next album was recorded in 1980 with Purnama Records
and also did well.
My new album is now released in the USA, Canada and the Netherlands.
( CD only ). This album makes me feel so proud!. My dreams as an
independent artist have finally come true after I'd waited such
a long time. I was finally in a position to produce my own album
with songs that express my feelings, soul, and musical style.
I wrote most of the songs myself and kept my "treasure" until I met
my very good friend Dakka Hutagalung again. He is one of the best
Indonesian (Batak) songwriters and music directors. We decided to
go for it, and headed to the studio. The final mixing was completed
in the U.S. While it is much more work, I prefer to do my mixing
manually rather than with a computer. I feel computers make the
music cold and unreal. Only by listening carefully to the music
can one create a harmony of vocals, colors, feeling, and sweetness,
and then melt it all together. This is one of the most difficult
jobs in the music industry. I was very fortunate to work with the
many talented artists and friends who helped create this album.
Special thanks to Dakka Hutagalung, composer and songwriter;
Jen Butar Butar, one of the best sax/sophran players from Jakarta;
and all the other musicians who made this possible.
We've decided to use the song Haruskah as the cover song
and the name for the album Haruskah.
The album is a rare mixture of traditional and modern Indonesian
pop music - romantic, sweet, jazzy, and still powerful.
The song tittles on the album:
- 1. Haruskah (It must be)
- 2. Kecewa (My heart is broken)
- 3. Atas nama cinta (In the name of love)
- 4. Jangan (Don't do it)
- 5. Oh asmara (Oh my love)
- 6. Korban cinta (Victim of love)
- 7. Diatas awan cinta (Love flies above the clouds)
- 8. Jejaka (Guy)
- 9. Kaulah hidupku (You are my everything)
- 10. Manalah mungkin (It's impossible)
Haruskah was recorded in 1996/97 with IPB Disc Recordings
(Irma's own independent Indonesian music label in the USA), and has
now been released in the Netherlands and in the USA, and is was
released in Jakarta, February 1997. Haruskah was on the U.S.
East Coast distributed by IPB Disc, and made the chain stores of
"Tower Records" early 1998.

coversong " Haruskah" on their Compulation CD!
