Jab! The Blue Devils of Paramin

Jab! The Blue Devils of Paramin

The district of Paramin, at Carnival time sheds its rural languor and erupts into an inferno of bluepainted ‘jabs’ or devils.

Isolated in the mountains of Trinidad, the district of Paramin, once a year at Carnival time sheds its rural languor and erupts into an inferno of bluepainted ‘jabs’ or devils. Kootoo, King Devil, prepares with his three brothers to once again win the village competition for the most convincing devil band. Known for his athletic prowess, and given to extraordinary feats like ripping up trees and scaling tall buildings, the charismatic Kootoo must still work hard with his band of devils to win the prize in the face of serious competition from a new generation of ‘jabs’.
