Greg Serebuoh

Greg Serebuoh has recently returned to New York from Argentina, where he worked and performed as an actor, director, and musician for three and a half years. During his time as a student at Yale University, Greg both sang in and directed the singing group, Shades, with which he toured internationally, sang for the enthronement of South African King Leruo Molotlegi, and produced its acclaimed album Sankofa. Greg's first love was music. He grew up within the rich African-American musical tradition, listening to and studying great artists like Donny Hathaway, Aretha Franklin, and Rachelle Ferrell. Over time, his musical palette grew to include other musical genres, from Western Classical Music to Ghanaian Highlife, from Salsa to Fado. His work in Argentina further enriched his artistry as he was exposed to experimental and folk art, numerous Latin American musical traditions, and social movements that left him with a passion for creating positive change. Now focusing on Soul/R&B, Greg continues to explore the possibilities of bringing various genres together, particularly the music of the African diaspora. Though known for his impressive voice, Greg is also recognized as a master of building intricate arrangements, layering complex rhythms onto four- to five-part harmony and drawing the audience into a musical experience unlike any other.
