Life is a Ceremony

how blessed we are. how free. how beautiful is life for those who can see.

Om Swastiastu. My name is Purnama, welcome to my world. Here I share my stories, my music & all that inspires me.
The world is transforming, and we decide into which direction we are heading.
Let us plant seeds that grow into forests of freedom.

citizen of the world. child of mother earth.

singer-songwriter • visual artist • wisdom keeper • ceremonialist

Born as Purnama Melissa, I am blessed to have grown up between the majestic mountains of Switzerland & the enchanting jungles of Bali. 

Music, art and community are the things to have most helped me to navigate the many trials & challenges of life. In the same way, I hope that my creations help to uplift & support those around me too! My aspiration is to shift the focus on the beauty & abundance that surrounds us in every moment, and how our our shared humanity, our intertwined emotions, bind us as one.

I am passionate about uniting people through the universal language of music. This fuels my drive to create sacred spaces that encourage & nurture authentic expression. I am also dedicated to preserve indigenous wisdom for the generations to come.
