The music, lyrics and stories of Bubbliapolis and the Bubblie family (Papa Bubblie, Mama Bubblie, Nasya, Aria, Key and Pink Jellyfish) were composed and created by Lily Dawis naturally and spontaneously (please watch the video of the journey of creation in the folder 1 What & How it all started). The accompanying vibrant illustrations were made by Sylvia Lukman, who worked with Gwen Stefani on the first Harajuku Collection and now the master licensee for Sanrio cards, Little Miss/Mister Men and Disney cards in Indonesia. Music arrangements were entrusted to the legendary producer, James F. Sundah. Movements by Lily Dawis & Ratna Saputra.

The Music

Currently consists of an album with 14 original songs organized as mini stories around a child’s day. The music album made history in 2010 as the first and only album from Indonesia to be successfully copyrighted in the United States Copyright Office*.

The songs that make up Bubbles of Love’s Music were originally inspired by Lily’s daily interactions with her own little family and meant to be heard within her own family. Heard by legendary Indonesian music producer, James F. Sundah, Lily was then encouraged to publish the works to avail them to families worldwide. As the songs were initially composed only for the composer’s own little family, they were meant to provide a sense of contentment and inspiration while preserving the child’s innocence and pureness of heart. The final published album is accompanied by stellar sound effects and ethnic musical instruments and has become a fixture in many families & schools in Indonesia and some overseas, most notably the homes of Annisa and Aliya Yudhoyono (daughters in law of current Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono) and their creative centers for the underprivileged; Rumah Pintar & Jendela Dunia, Tumble Tots & Leaps ‘n Bounds (60+ centers), Gymboree, Popay Satori Montessori, Oak Tree.

Bubbles of Love’s songs were composed by Lily Dawis originally only for her own little family. Found by the legendary music producer James F. Sundah (co-writer of the hit “When You Came Into My Life,” the Scorpions) he encouraged Lily to publish the songs. James then produced the album for the world!
Incorporating rare sound effects & Indonesian traditional instruments, this album has been warmly welcomed & enjoyed daily by tens of thousands schoolkids and families all over the world. The songs are set in the imaginary city of Bubbliapolis and sung daily by Papa Bubblie, Mama Bubblie, Nasya, Aria and Key.
In this first album, the primary crooners are Meilody, Aulia and Venska.

*Meilody (“Mama Bubblie”) fell in love with music and singing since very little. Her dad has a music school and expected nothing but the best from Meilody. A talented hard worker, in her teenage years, she went on to be crowned the 1st winner of Indonesia’s National Radio Star Competition (2007) and managed to be the Runner Up in South East Asia’s Nusantara classics festival (2007). She was also 1st winner of national Mandarin Singing Competition (2006 & 2007). In 2010, the rich yet clear texture of Meilody’s voice repeatedly captured composer and producers’ ears and hearts since blind audition process and earned her the voice of “Mama Bubblie.”
*Aulia was a tender nine year old in 2010 when the producer James Sundah found her in an English course as he was scouring all parts of Indonesia for someone to sing as “Nasya.” The jazzy and playful timbre of her voice and great pronunciation won her the spot of awesome “Nasya.”
*Venska is an Indonesian girl who currently lives in the United States and born to musician parents who regularly sing and play for church and state events. Her ability to carry big notes way beyond her years made her a shoo-in to fill the sweet yet powerful voice of “Aria.”
