Che-Fu & The Kratez: Return of the Navigator

  • Music
  • Auckland Exclusive

SCHOOL TICKETS AVAILABLE

When Che-Fu dropped his second album, Navigator (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, 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 20-year anniversary with Che-Fu and his band, the Kratez, in this Auckland Arts Festival exclusive.

Opening are Che-Fu'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 music writer Nick Bollinger calls “not just a beautiful album, but an important one".
