Polkadot + Moonbeam is a pocket-sized acoustic duo that brings a romantic twist to the unassuming ukulele, adding vocals in sweet harmony and a swinging bass. We share our hearts through our music, always with a touch of nostalgia, and a lot of love.

Named after Frank Sinatra’s first hit song with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra in 1940, 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 a successful recording artist for over ten years, 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 married in 2013 and are now based in Perth Australia.
