Che Fu to headline at Mean Matariki Mean

One of New Zealand’s leading hip hop/R & B and reggae artists, Che Fu, is set to headline at the Mean Matariki Mean concert at the Corban Estate Arts Centre in Henderson on Queens Birthday Weekend.

Mean Matariki Mean is a family event that’s been organized especially for primary and secondary-aged children to celebrate Matariki, the Maori new year.

Organisers for the event say Che was chosen because of his ability to capture and move audiences of all ages.

“Matariki is a time of new beginnings and we hope that this show – a mix of successful and up and coming performers might encourage budding artists in the audience to pursue their dreams,” says Martin Sutcliffe, the director of CEAC.

At the young age of four, Che Fu was inspired to become a musician when he stood stage left at the legendary Bob Marley concert in Auckland in 1979.

He went on to become one of the founding members of the iconic kiwi band, Supergroove, while he was at Western Springs High School. The band did a world tour and their debut album, Traction, went triple platinum in the mid 1990s.

To date Che has had more top-ten singles in the New Zealand charts than any other artist.

Che will be joined by a host of other acts at the Mean Matariki Mean concert 5 June between 1-4pm. They include kapa haka, DJ Poroufessor, 2011 NZ Junior Hip Hop Champs, Lil Saints and comedian Mike King’s daughter, Alex King. Alex King won three bronze medals at the World Performing Arts Championships in the States last year.

With Che Fu, Lil Saints, Alex King, kappa haka, and more.
