Jab Molassie

‘Jab Molassie’ was conceptualized and composed by Etienne Charles as part of his latest album, ‘Carnival: The Sound of a People’. The film shows Charles as he is exposed to the sights, sounds, and movements of Jab Molassie in Paramin and Port of Spain, highlighting the myriad influences that inspired this composition. Initially, the footage was only used by the composer to inspire sounds. The idea for the film came after the music had been composed and recorded to increase awareness and impact.
