Kankalang Village, a band depicting “bachannal” and “comese” in village life i.e. small town gossip and drama, was another Brooklyn Jouvert band. Here is one of the individual masqueraders – the soucouyant. The soucouyant is a mythical figure that is sort of like a vampire. She takes off her skin and flies around at night sucking the blood of unsuspecting victims. She must return to her skin before sunrise or she will perish.
