Peter Broggs

Peter Broggs (born Henry James in 1954 in Hanover Parish, Jamaica[1]) is a Jamaican reggae musician. He is a successful artist in Jamaica and well known in the international reggae scenes.

Around the beginning of the 1970s, he decided to move away from the country and find work in the city areas. There he found work, and found himself among reggae artists and musicians such as Gregory Isaacs, Bingy Bunny, Errol Holt and others who worked in the Jamaican music industry at the time.

Peter Broggs sang and recorded sporadically during the 1970s, and his music was mostly about the Rastafari movement. One song recorded at this time was "Jah Golden Throne", recorded at the Channel One Studios and King Tubby studios, and released in the UK on the short-lived Selena imprint in 1980.

Broggs suffered a stroke on August 27, 2004, and this left him paralyzed on the right side and hardly able to speak. The album Igzabihir Yakal was released in 2005; the album has been recorded with Dubcreator at the DC Studio for sound system team King Shiloh in Amsterdam in 2002 and the profit from this album went to help pay Broggs' medical bills.
