Polkadot + Moonbeam is a pocket-sized jazz duo band in Perth that brings a romantic twist to the unassuming ukulele, adding vocals in sweet harmony and a swinging bass.


Named after Frank Sinatra’s first hit song with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra in 1940, Polkadot + Moonbeam performs a repertoire of jazz and evergreen classics, from luscious ballads to lively swing numbers and Latin grooves. They seek to share their hearts through their music, always with a touch of nostalgia and a lot of love.

Polkadot + Moonbeam was formed in 2010 in Sydney when award-winning Singaporean singer-songwriter Juliet Pang met Sydney-based wandering musician Didi Mudigdo. At the time, Juliet had been active for over ten years as a successful recording artist, while Didi had just returned from a four-year adventure of performing in Japan, China and Southeast Asia. Discovering their unique musical synergy when they first met in Sydney, they formed Polkadot + Moonbeam, and went on to perform acclaimed shows at jazz venues and festivals in Australia, Japan, China, Singapore and Malaysia. Juliet and Didi are now married and based in Perth Australia.
