"Jab Jabs of Paramin Trinidad"
Directed and filmed by Vincent T Joachim
Length: 4:10 mins

The Jab Molassie is a character played in Trinidad's Carnival. The history of the character is based on slavery and the production of molasses. The African slaves were perceived by their owners to have no morals and act devilishly. This character depiction is a mockery of that stereotype. This was shot in Paramin Trinidad.
