aka Che Ness
Simon Grigg
26 May 2013

Che Fu was born Che Ness in Auckland and grew up in Grey Lynn. His father is Tigi Ness, the well-known musician, social and political activist and Minister of Culture in the Polynesian Panthers. His mother Ama Rauhihi Ness was also a key Polynesian Panther member.

Of Māori (mother) and Niuean (father) blood, he was raised by his grandmother and joined a Western Springs College school band in 1988, The Low Down Dirty Blues Band, who, in the early 1990s changed their name to Supergroove and went on to sell huge quantities of their debut album Traction in 1994 and 1995, both in New Zealand and across Asia.
