Career[edit]

Titi was born in Jakarta. She began singing on public television as a teenager, hoping a record company would notice. At age 17 in 1983, she represented Indonesia in the Miss World competition, but was not a finalist. Also a dancer, she performed with Guruh Soekarnoputra's Swara Mahardhikka troupe. She sang backup vocals for Chrisye and appeared in a few movies early in her career.[1] She released her first solo album in 1984, Imajinasi.[2] Her singing career flourished in the 1990s, with the hit singles "Bintang-Bintang" ("Stars"), "Ekspresi" ("Expression") and "Salahkah Aku" ("Am I Wrong?").[3] Currently, she is one of the three Indonesian divas that formed a group together with Krisdayanti and Ruth Sahanaya called 3 Diva.

Personal life[edit]

She was first married to actor Bucek Depp in 1995, with whom she has three children, twin daughters Salma and Salwa Mucthar and a son Daffa Mucthar,.[1] They divorced in 1997. Then she got married to American teacher Andy Dougharty in 1999, with whom she has one child Stephanie Dougharty. She divorced from Dougharty in 2006.[4] She also had a previous six-year relationship with one of her musical collaborators, Indra Lesmana.[1]
