Mocko Jumbies

  • Available for your next event!

Serving as guardians to all spirits, Mocko Jumbies mysteriously appear rushing through the brush to preside over festivals, protecting villagers from evil.

This high-energy stilt-walking act is part of an African tradition dating back 1,000 years to Ghana. It was brought to the Caribbean islands by slaves and is now a part of the Carnival in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Trinidad and Tobago.

Their costumes are detailed and bright for Caribbean carnival-style or primitive for African tribal theme. These entertainers are lively and engaging and great for interacting with guests.
