Jamal Gibbs also affectionately called “Meck Meck” is currently studying at the University of Trinidad and Tobago pursuing a Bachelor's of Fine Arts, in the discipline of Music. Jamal was always passionate about music, mainly that of Steelpan, as he began playing at the tender age of four.
Gibbs was later on exceedingly enthusiastic when he realized his then-new-found talent of arranging for Steel Orchestra. He has now been arranging for seven years. In 2013, Gibbs arranged for Invaders Youth Steel Orchestra where he placed fifth (5th) at the National Junior Panorama Competition.
Last year Gibbs competed in Trinidad & Tobago’s National Panorama Competition for the firs time, arranging for Nutones Steel Orchestra, in the Small band category. At age twenty-four, his talents were once again audible through his interaction with Invaders Youth Steel Orchestra in the National Junior Panorama in 2016.
