Shibani virtually grew up on stage. Proficient in both Western & Indian styles of song & dance, this fiery performer learned the ropes of the industry whilst in the spotlight on Australia’s grandest stages, including the world renowned Sydney Opera House.

Determined to share her rich, velvet toned vocals & fierce dance moves with the world, she moved to India to pursue a career in music with her two sisters. Together they formed the group DMAJOR. They went on to perform at various shows all over the country. They were the opening act on a 7 city tour for well known Bhangra act Stereo Nation and the DNA Style Awards. DMAJOR performed in Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and opened for Juggy D in Bangkok. They managed a coup of sorts by opening for Akon at the launch of the Kolkata Knightriders team during the IPL and had the opportunity to record a remixed version of ‘saara zamana’ for brand Jealous 21, a song made popular by Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachan back in the 70’s.
