aka DJ Fitchie, Chris Faiumu

Known professionally as Mu, Chris Faiumu has been a pivotal player in the Wellington music scene for over two decades and the key innovator behind an identifiably unique sound that attracts a global audience. He has also helped change the way musicians deliver music to their audience.

A first-generation Samoan-New Zealander from Wainuiomata, Mu first arrived on the Wellington scene in 1991 as part of the legendary DJ collective Roots Foundation, which also included Koa Williams, Danny Lemon, Goosebump and Marek.
