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 devilishy. This character depiction is a mockery of that stereotype.

This was shot in Paramin Trinidad.
