My investigative studio research on Modern Sensitivity to Cultural History,  as it relates to Caribbean Carnival and it’s connective roots to the colonial plantation narrative,  has prompted me to explore 2018 Caribbean carnival performance.  However, the intuitive need to view documentation of several Caribbean islands performances and sociolinguistic reference to their carnival history has revealed there is not much of a difference between the islands and its history.

Jab jab and it’s devil-like characters greased down with black oil, dragging chains and head horns, not forgetting a granny posey turn over on the head, drew my attention to aesthetics and the fact that not all of the carnival is about vibrant colours, but jab jabbers characters pulls questions out of the box, such as what, why and how does it relate to Grenada’s colonial history.
