 Zenya's Story

Zenya Vi was born in Texas and is an all out Rocker. She contributes keyboards, guitar, bass, drum playing and vocals to the Ducado VeGA and Zenya sound. Having lived in both Texas and California as a youth she started singing, composing, and songwriting at a very young age.

Her father taught her to play drums and her grandmother was instrumental in her learning to play piano and her learning to sing. She is self-taught on all instruments except drums. Most of her musical life was spent as a solo artist prior to joining Ducado’s band in 2010.

In early 2017 she was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast C - word and has undergone a radical transformation since her diagnosis, surgery and being declared c-word FREE! She and Ducado have opted to not use or speak the name of the disease, simply calling it the C-word. It is their way of taking the power back from that which attempted to rob Zenya of her power. The hope is to be an inspiration to others who may be fighting the disease. During and after treatment, Zenya has continued to record, write, create and film. Her focus is now on recording for licensing, film and television projects. She has also been working actively behind the scenes with Ducado on the film and video side of the business. Her interest in being a public figure in the recording world has shifted. She is currently retired from performing Live but is always open to the idea stepping onto the stage for guest spots.
