Dara Puspita Story Soon To Be A Movie, The 1st Indonesian all-Girl Band To Go International
The Indonesian music history recorded Dara Puspita as a girl band who truly shined in the 60’s era. The group, founded in 1964 by Titiek Adji Rachman (melody guitar), Lies Soetisnowati Adji Rachman (bass), Susy Nander (drum), and Ani Kusuma (rhythm guitar), was the first Indonesian girl band to go international.
Dara Puspita’s journey to Europe started in July 1968. They also performed in Iran, West Germany, Turkey, to England. In Queen Elizabeth’s country, Dara Puspita met Collin Johnson from NEM Enterprise, who had previously managed The Beatles.
The long journey of Dara Puspita will be made into a movie for the silver screens. This plan is revealed by Frederica, a Falcon Pictures producer.
“At the beginning, we were in the process of making Koes Plus (biopic). In our research from A to Z, we learned about Dara Puspita,” said Frederica, to tabloidbintang.com.

Dara Puspita’s huge reputation made Frederica enthusiastic to make it into a movie. “Imagine, in 1968, a girl band performed in dozens of cities abroad. That is an inspiring story for a movie,” she said.
To realize her plan, Frederica has met directly with Titik Hamzah, the bassist of Dara Puspita. Titik positively welcomes Falcon Pictures’s intention.
As of now, Falcon Pictures is still in the research stage to determine the frame of the stories to be filmed. From years of Dara Puspita’s journey, several key and most interesting moments will be selected to be written into the scenario.
“We collect their stories and ask which are the most interesting for them. Then we look at the conflicts to be explored. And most probably there will also be some addition for dramatization,” explained Frederica.
