Giveton Gelin

Pursuing jazz is difficult when you lack an environment to develop in the Bahamas, but since the age of 10 Giveton Gelin has taught himself how to play the trumpet simply by emulating what he would hear on his favorite records. Despite years of self-tutelage it wasn't until he saw double bass player Adrian D'Aguilar playing live that Giveton realised "there was a place for jazz in the Bahamas!" Through this encounter led to Giveton taking part in music program abroad such as The Manhattan School of Music Summer Camp Jazz Band, Manhattan School of Music Summer Camp Latin Jazz Band and The Spike Wilner Trio
