His mission was to revive the almost forgotten West African tradition of the Moko Jumbie or "stilt-walker, " and adopt it into the annual Carnival celebration. Today, more than one hundred Moko Jumbies&emdash; boys and girls starting from the age of four years old&emdash; practice at the Keylemanjahro School. Internationally recognized photographer Stefan Falke spent six years documenting these "dancing spirits" of Trinidad. With rare power, he captures the vivid costumes and haunting beauty of the Moko Jumbie dances in over 200 dazling color photographs. (Key Words: Moko Jumbies, Trinidad, Stefan Falke, Performing Arts, Glen Dragon de Souza, Keylemanjahro School of Arts and Culture, Stilt Walkers, Carnival).
