Obeah, similar to Haiti’s voodoo, is the practice of black magic.
Obeah men can still be found practicing this outlawed craft in Jamaica. An Obeah man can cast or break a spell, go into a shamanic trance or, it’s said, even bring someone back from the dead.
Then there’s the ‘duppy bats’ (or Jamaican Witch Moths) – frequent visitors to the inside of most island homes that are apparently the returning spirits of loved ones.
In a land where superstition reigns by day and duppies (spirits) haunt by night, religion is more than just saying your prayers before you go to bed.
