South African born, USA-based Xhosa singer, songwriter, composer and organist Peter Ngqibs releases music rooted in personal stories and playfulness with elements of social justice; particularly empowering the LGBTQ community. His first single “Broken,” from his debut album Let Me Go, as remixed by Mikey Gallagher, climbed to the Top 30 in the U.K. Commercial Pop Club Charts. His music video for “Free Me” was nominated for Best Music Video by the Jersey Shore Film Festival (2018); “Over Again” was nominated by the Garden State Film Festival (2018) and the Berlin Motion Picture Festival (2017) for Best Music Video and Best Rock Music Video respectively.
As a part of an ongoing project, Peter has documented several South African folk songs and published choral arrangements through the Henry Leck Choral Series and Hal Leonard Publishing. He is an active choral coach for South African language songs in and around the New York tri-state area. Although based in the States, Peter still calls South Africa home.
