We can’t believe our final 2013 issue of Caribbean Beat is out already (#124, November/December 2013) – both on our website and of course on Caribbean Airlines and Air Jamaica planes – and that we’re now in pre-production for our January/February issue. But just like that, 2013 draws to a close.
Each year, dating from the days of the Tobago Jazz Festival through to its successor the Tobago Jazz Experience (TJE), the April event has always featured some of the world’s top jazz, R&B, neo-soul, fusion and of course local and regional acts. Their sixth edition – which runs Saturday 19th – Sunday 27th, 2014 – looks to be no exception. As always, the event is designed to showcase all that Tobago has to offer by taking visitors on a tour of the island through concerts hosted in villages across the island.
This year’s edition will be headlined by nine-time Grammy winner, John Legend, as was announced today at a press conference hosted by Trinidad & Tobago at the World Travel Market in London, UK. It was also today at the WTM that we at MEP unveiled our latest issue of Discover Trinidad & Tobago magazine, which will be all new for 2014, and with a new website launching over the coming weeks.

The action culminates with the UCI Tour of Tobago Race, which takes riders over a 112km course across the varied and sometimes brutal terrain of Tobago’s scenic Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean coasts. Read more

Curated based on people’s responses to our posts on our blog, Twitter, and Facebook, our September round-up of August headline-makers includes medallists, turtles, Trini doubles, retirements and much more.
Somehow once we cross June or July, the year just suddenly seems to fly by – even faster. It feels like the year just started, but already we’re out with the September/October issue (#123) of Caribbean Beat, both on our website and of course, where it belongs on Caribbean Airlines and Air Jamaica planes!
