G’day everyone, I’m Kashia, I’m Salale and I’m Koebi and we’re the Faumuis. We’ve been singing together for over five years and the main reason why we do music is because we really really love it. We may not have the most amazing voices or the most gifted musicians you’ve heard, but we can promise you our best every time we sing.

Biography

Kashia (19), Salale (18) and Koebi (13) Faumui are a vocal group who've been singing and performing together for over five years. In that time they've released six original albums and three cover albums. Predominately raised and influenced by gospel and acapella music from a young age, the group have been exploring and broadening their interests in other music genres. All three have been classically trained in piano and have extended their interest of musical instruments to guitar, bass, ukulele, trumpet and drums.

The group developed their vocal ability to sing and harmonize through regular singing sessions around the guitar as toddlers, and under the musical influences of their Samoan father and Polish mother. Kashia says, “We do music because we love it. We’ve been doing music and singing since we’ve been little and we couldn’t think of anything else we’d rather be doing. We may not have the most amazing voices or the most gifted musicians you’ve heard, but we can promise you our best every time we sing.”

 Having already performed at various conferences, corporate events and festivals with positive feedback, the group spent six months writing, recording and producing their first album “Seriously” which was released in January 2012. This was followed by a promotional tour of New Zealand and Australia with their album receiving airplay in both commercial and community radio with positive reviews from listeners.

The group continued to write record and produce with the culmination of the release of “Always searching” and “Learning how to fly.” Their fourth and fifth original albums “Expectations” and “House of God” was just released the end of 2013.

In 2014 the group released “The Acapella Project,” “The Gospel Collection” and “Gospel songs of Elvis” and in March 2015 they released their sixth original album “Songs for Emma” highlighting the serious issue of child abuse in our institutions and wider community. This was followed by a promotional tour of Europe and China in July and August 2015. For more information go to: www.thefaumuis.com
