Welcome back, COCO readers! December 14, 2015 marks our third year anniversary! Before I get into what’s in store for COCO’s music and entertainment section, I must say that there have been many sleepless nights and countless meetings with the executive and editorial teams to ensure that we relaunch with the end goal in mind of providing quality content relevant to YOU, the Caribbean woman.
We have a few surprises in store for you all in 2016, but for now I am going to speak specifically to the music and entertainment section, Rhythm & Beats or simply R&B.
What is Rhythm & Beats?
Rhythm & Beats presents the sounds of the Caribbean to COCO’s readership! In this section we aim to share with the Caribbean woman the sounds she is looking for to ensure she remains connected with her culture and heritage, whether home or abroad. In this section, you can look forward to reading in-depth interviews and profiles of the Caribbean’s top music talents and rising stars.
COCO & Music Journalism
As an online publication that features music and entertainment content, we believe it is our duty to create a space that allows music journalists the opportunity to grow within the industry. This year at the COCO Magazine, we will focus on connecting with Caribbean music journalists (whether a novice or expert) within the industry to determine ways we can provide support to this niche group of writers.
We truly believe that having a passion for writing and music should lead anyone towards a career within the music journalism industry. Whether you see yourself doing journalism professionally or simply enjoy writing as a hobby; here at the COCO Magazine we will provide the resources and support required to ensure your success as a writer within the Caribbean market.
Goals for Next Year
The primary goal of the Rhythm & Beats section is to provide an exclusive look at the Caribbean music industry. We will do this by featuring notable public figures and celebrities within that industry that allows you to get to know them on a personal level.
As the Editor of this section, I would like to ensure that not only the content but the team of writers for COCO’s Rhythm & Beats section are showcasing the passion they have for Caribbean music and entertainment news as much I can. When you strip away the role and responsibilities I have at COCO, the one thing I will forever be is a fan, advocate, and ambassador for Caribbean culture.
With that I say “Cheers to your amazing life” and I look forward to sharing an awesome 2016 of great Caribbean music and interesting entertainment news stories with YOU!
