Sat, March 31, 2012 | link
The exciting new 20th anniversary issue featuring Anya Ayoun-Chee on the cover of Caribbean Beat – the magazine of the true Caribbean – is on Caribbean Airlines planes; in the mail to subscribers; and online, where readers can also access a complete flip-book of the current issue. In this issue's cover
story, "Hot off the Runway", Trinidad & Tobago designer Anya Ayoung-Chee tells Laura Dowrich-Phillips how her career has taken off since she won
the Project Runway reality TV contest.
In honour of Beat's 20th anniversary, the magazine's
designers Bridget van Dongen and Kevon Webster choose some of their favourites from Caribbean Beat’s 20 years of striking
cover designs in the piece "20 years of covering the Beat". Meanwhile, former editor Skye Hernandez is "On
the Beat", where she pays tribute to the magazine's coverage and longevity.
style is highlighted as Lisa Allen-Agostini discovers eco-friendly design is both a modern idea and an old tradition in the
region ("Green & pleasant lands"). In Grenada, David Katz paints the real picture of how Grenada’s women
artists are going beyond the stereotypes of regional art. In nearby Tobago, Skye Hernandez uncovers why a gripping tale of
a bloody sea battle off Tobago is being re-enacted for a TV docudrama ("Raising ghosts from a watery grave").
Further afield, Zahra Gordon talked to Trinidad-born
Michael de Souza – the man behind Rastamouse – who created one of UK TV’s best-loved new
characters. By contrast, Garry Steckles says farewell Burrell of Jamaica, and pays tribute to living legends of Caribbean
music as he salutes "the great survivors".
On the travel beat, while Janine Fung journeys
from the ranch to the rodeo in Guyana, "Island Girl" Donna Yawching was reminded – surprisingly – of
her tropical home while wintering on a Canadian island.
Foodies will want to follow as
Franka Philip browses through new books on Caribbean food ("Doing it by the book") in her regular Caribbean Cookup
column. Also on the food beat, Nazma Muller takes an ital tour of Kingston in "Eat. Pray. Love your Veggies", where
she discovers that, while Rastas have always eaten healthy, natural food, now it’s gone gourmet.
And of course, Beat's regular departments deliver your regular dose of all things Caribbean. "Happenings "rounds
up current and coming events on the Caribbean calendar, while James Ferguson’s “Beautiful looks at how an ancient
Caribbean volcano inspired a master of European art.
The magazine wishes to extend
very special thanks to all its readers, advertisers, contributors and partners over the last 20 years, who've made Beat one
of the longest-running and most widely read magazines in the Caribbean diaspora, and looks forward to the next 20 years of
moving to the Caribbean Beat.
