Puspa Dewi, a traditional Balinese dancer and performer, comes from Gianyar, the art center of Bali. She graduated from the Indonesian Institute for the Arts in Denpasar, where she studied traditional and contemporary Arts and Dance.

After receiving numerous local awards in Bali and Indonesia for her performances of traditional Balinese dance, she toured major international dance festivals throughout India, Malaysia, Taiwan, Germany and Japan.

Puspa's creative journey now continues with music; taking her passion for movement into the recording studio with an exciting double album release.

In January 2010, we released the traditional Balinese folk song album "Bird and Flower" and in July 2010, we added her second album "Secret Wish", a World pop album with tracks ranging from charming Indonesian pop ballads and heartfelt renditions of traditional ethnic materials to cool funky World fusion songs and catchy international dance tracks - all written, arranged and produced by Kevin Bird of Bird Productions.
