Alluring and daring. That’s how people describe Indonesian actress-model-disc jockey Echa Frauen. She’s one of the main stars of the action movie 10: The Secret Mission, and she was featured in men’s magazines in Indonesia, including Max, and Popular.
Last Friday, January 18, I had a chance to talk to her about her showbiz career in Indonesia, and planning to stay for a while in the Philippines for her upcoming projects.
“What’s keeping you busy these days?” I asked “More on DJing.” Said Echa. She had a gig with Baby Selena and other DJs in East Kalimantan, Indonesia last Saturday, January 19.
“My genre is R&B and Hip-hop, and Latin. But I can do [almost any genres] like EDM, or Trance. I can do all kinds of music.” Said Echa about the genres she likes to perform.
I also asked about who influences her when it comes to music, “For now, I don’t have favorite DJ. I don’t know. But when it comes to fashion, I like DJ Soda from Korea.” She laughed.
What’s the most unforgettable thing happen to you in your career? “I think when my cover came out in Popular Magazine, and we did cat walk in the club. And people were clapping and said ‘Yeah, Echa!'” She said.
She was a cover girl of the November 2018 issue of Popular Magazine. Popular is the most well-known men’s magazine in Indonesia. They also have an annual event titled, Miss Popular where contestants show off their talent in singing, modeling, vlogging, and more.
