Caribia Digest was originally published as a full-color, print magazine in 1993 out of St. Thomas, United States Virgin Islands. The idea for the magazine had been conceived years before by the Publisher, the late Rudolph "Rudy" Parker and his wife. Parker shared his vision with Robert "Bob" Wilmer, who took on the role of Editor-in-Chief and Director of Sales and Marketing. The gentlemen invited Anita Davis to be the Managing Music Editor, and logo design was handled by Karen Mozzo.
The main purpose of Caribia Digest evolved from being simply a catalogue of the Caribbean music industry to a comprehensive look at arts, entertainment and lifestyles throughout the region. Among the many topics covered: Dominica songstress Ophelia, the oral traditions of Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago's Jazz and Gospel pan explosions, marketing and tourism with Flicks Productions' Eric Zucker, Puerto Rico's Bomba y Plena as a musical art form , the British Virgin Islands' own 'Mighty Zed', ZBVI and the musical and spiritual rebirth of vocalist Jon Lucien.
As an online publication, Caribia Digest will continue to cover stories of interest to lovers of the Caribbean and Latin America, with a more complete look at the unique lifestyle that can only be called... CARIBIA!
