Jumbees Roamin’ Them Streets Before Jouve

Last saturday 4 o’clock in the mornin’ Jouve warm-up in front of China Clipper in the former oil city of San Nicolas where the action is. People gettin’ down there waitin’ on Jouve Mornin’ [J’ouvert Morning]. A tradition when people get up early in the mornin’, dressed in their pyama and go jumpin’ for a few hours parade till early mornin’ sun come up. Many a Jumbees roamin’ them streets that nite. Jumbee is a type of mythological spirit or demon in the Caribbean folklore.
An awesome night. Enjoy the photo impression.
