BANGALORE: India is yet to see a girl band that has made it big. All set to make its mark on the music scene, Mumbai-based girl band D Major participated in a publicity event and fan interaction session here on Tuesday.

The trio or the Dandekar sisters comprising Shibani, Apeksha and Anusha Dandekar interacted with a small crowd of music lovers at the Scullers showroom on Brigade Road. Anusha, a familiar face among the younger crowd, courtesy her stint with MTV as a VJ, fielded several questions.

The trio handed out Scooty Pep keys to the winners of a contest organised by Jealous 21, an apparel brand for girls. The band was delighted to be a part of this event while giving out the bright coloured vehicles of the “Babelicious” range from TVS Scooty to the winners.

“We choose India to launch ourselves as a band, as the music market here had no girl bands,” said Ms. Shibani, the eldest of the sisters. “The first single from the album is a famous track for which all the people would surely be able to sing along,” Ms. Anusha said.

Refusing to reveal the song, the group said that it was indeed a remix version of a very popular song.

In addition to interacting with fans and answering their queries, the band posed for photographs with the winners and fans, signing autographs and also providing fashion tips to the audience. “Bangalore has great weather, and people are really friendly,” Ms. Anusha said. She said that it used to be a really “chilled-out place” but appears to be more crowded and noisy off-late.

D Major will be touring various cities to promote its music release. The band staged a short performance at Bangalore Central in the evening.
