R.I.P: Andi Meriam Matalatta

Andi Meriam Matalatta (53), one of the best Indonesian female singer between mid 70's and mid 80's, passed away on Friday, 4 June, at a hospital in Amsterdam, Holland.

Kompas reported that Andi Meriam, popularly known as the Pearl of the South, was on a vacation with her daugther, Dania (32), when she suddenly got sick and hospitalized. Her relative in Jakarta was quoted as saying that she was healthy when she left Jakarta.

Andi Meriam's body will be flown to Jakarta on Sunday and shall be buried in Makasar, South Sulawesi.

I would like to express my condolence and sympathy to her family.
