Dara Puspita (Flower Girls) was the most successful girl flower power band from Indonesia. They formed in Surabaya in 1964: Titiek Adji Rachman (lead guitar), her sister Lies Soetisnowati Adji Rachman (bass guitar), Ani Kusuma (rhythm guitar) and Susy Nander (drums). When they recorded their first album “Jang Pertama” in 1966, Titiek Hamzah was playing bass while Lies had moved over to the rhythm guitar. In 1968, they left to tour Europe. They returned home in 1971 and disbanded shortly thereafter.
