Che Fu & The Kratez: Return of the Navigator

No longer available

Great Hall, Auckland Town Hall


When Che Fu dropped his second album Navigator in 2001, he brought forth tracks that have become Kiwi classics, crossing genres and bringing hip hop to the masses. 

Mixing Polynesian sounds with reggae, soul, and hip hop, the singles ‘Misty Frequencies’ and ‘Fade Away’ are still some of the most played tracks on local radio. Navigator is a bonafide classic, and we celebrate its twentieth anniversary with Che and his band, the Kratez, for this Auckland Arts Festival exclusive.  

Opening are Che’s top picks, Team Dynamite and Rubi Du, with DJ Manuel Bundy on the decks throughout the night. 

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime concert honouring one of “New Zealand’s most eloquently soulful vocalists” and his landmark Navigator, which Nick Bollinger calls “not just a beautiful album, but an important one.”
