Blue Devil. Carnival. Trinidad and Tobago.

The Blue Devils are among the most vibrant and energetic traditional characters in the Carnival of Trinidad, one of the largest in the Americas. Akin to “jab molassi” (or “molasses devils”) and sometimes identified simply as “jabs,” blue devils paint their clothes and skin blue, often by using ‘azulillo’, an ordinary bluing laundry tablet. It is difficult to date the origin of the blue devils accurately, but they can be traced back at least to the period before World War I, and some claim much earlier. Blue devil “bands,” as the groups are known, appear throughout Trinidad, in places like Point Fortin and Arima. But they are often associated with the mountain district of Paramin, about a half hour from Port of Spain, the capital of Trinidad.

Anlat bana o kaşarı

Sicak bi yaz gunu gormustum onu

Durusu, kokusu her seyi bi baskaydi

Ona karsi bir seyler hissetmistim

Bir an once onunla basbasa kalmak istedim

Oturup onu saatlerce izlemek…

Fakat cesaret edemedim cunku o luks yerlerde takiliyordu ve onunla olmak cok zordu

Neden paramin olmadigini dusunerek eve dogru gittim

Eve girdigimde uzgun oldugumu goren annem ne oldugunu sordu

Ben de bir sey yok sadece acim yemek hazirla dedim

Ellerimi yikadim ve masaya oturmak icin odaya girdigimde basim donmeye basladi

Kafamdan vurulmus gibi oldum

Markette gordugum ve onun icin cok farkli seyler hissettigim kasar masadaydi

Onun o goruntusu ve kokusu hala harikaydi onu yemek icin hayvan gibi masaya atildim ve bir hamlede yediiim

Ohh miss gibiydii be
