Feeling a bit camera shy


Fanny Starchild - born in rural Quebec - sang in choirs and family gatherings as a child
and learned to play the piano.
- moved away from home in her late teens - travelled west and south to
places like San Francisco, L.A., Tucson and San Diego, living as a
gypsy, teaching herself guitar, bass and flute, while she explored the
outer reaches of her vocal range and started to write her own songs.
- eventually settled in Vancouver, played with the La-La’s, the Animal
Band, and then her own group the Earth Lovers.- did a lot of busking
to make ends meet, then found herself moving into the realm of
Children’s entertainment for which she started her own Starchild And

- A naturally gifted performer on many levels,she commands a
compelling presence whether entertaining in a Jazzy, piano-bar
setting, or engaging youngsters with magic tricks and improvised
puppet shows, or even hamming it up with her “Operatic” skills.
But she can also grab that electric guitar and and really Rock it out
with the best of them.

Vegari Cendar - Grew up on the Caribbean island of St.Lucia - immigrated to Canada
at age 18, finishing high school in Toronto, and learned to play piano.
- Moved to Vancouver to “find himself” - taught himself guitar and then
started to play bass in a short-lived Blues band - After a few years of
just playing at home or with friends, he started to connect with the
Caribbean community, playing in bands like the Love Angels, the
Trinidad Cavaliers Steelband, Karib, Mango Dub and the One
Riddim Reggae Band.
- Interest in other styles led him into Salsa with Orchestre Maya and
Salsa Brava; Art Rock with the Mike Club; Funk with Stepping-Up;
Samba with Ache Brazil; and his own Pop/Rock trio VMW.
- On the periphery of all of this he also explored African rhythms with
groups like Asa & the Ogedengbe Drummers, and the award-winning
Alpha Yaya Diallo Band, with whom he still tours occasionally.

A casual meeting at a drum circle resulted in friendship for Fanny and Vegari, which later developed into a long-standing relationship as well as an on-going musical partnership. Together they were part of eMotion led by singer/songwriter Julie Blue, who also involved them in her Singspiration Choir
However, the desire to create their own musical groove led to the creation of the Starchild band, sometimes known as Uforea, eventually morphing into what is now Starchild And The Mystiques
