The largest most enigmatic (some say crazy) band of revelers on Jouvert morning in Brooklyn is the Grenada Jab Jab posse. These people really know how to have fun. It’s a raging mass of bodies and oil that rages through the streets and it’s force urges people to get out of the way or get crushed/or consumed by the fury that is the jab jab posse.  Even Caribbean celebrities join the fray. Always among the heaving crowd are odd bits, bushes and expletive-laced political statements :-), snakes, even the odd pig head, conch shells and a steady old rhythm.  I love it. I love to see them, to run from them, to perch myself near enough to capture but far enough that I and my equipment are safe.  For a bigger taste of the jab jab posse click here.
