Fusa to Bring Hip Hop Fusion Sounds to Cathedral Square
13 January 2003
Summertimes FREE Friday Lunchtime Concert in Cathedral
Square, Friday 17th January, 12.15pm to 1.45pm.
Eight piece band FUSA will bring Hip Hop, R & B, and
Jazz fusion sounds to Christchurch Cathedral Square this Friday
17th January from 12.15pm as part of the SummerTimes festival,
produced by Christchurch City Council Leisure.
The brainchild of Shane Asi, the band have worked together for
the last year, successfully competing in the Christchurch 2002 Battle
of The Bands, winning locally, and gaining 4th place nationally.
Five MCs front the band; Shane and Lupe Asi, Ave Robertson,
Solomon Smith, and Red Setu.
With an average age of 23, this young band has an international
flavour, while retaining their pacific roots.
Keyboards, bass, live drums, and acoustic guitar make up the backing,
and the band like to play with the rhythmical possibilities of rap.
FUSA have performed recently at the Life Festival, and
Mana in the Park, as well as playing regularly at the Dux De
for more festival information.
