SharLisa Picks Up the Mantle as New Editor in Chief at CARIBBEAN ENTERTAINMENT MAGAZINE

Writer : Caribbean E-Magazine on Monday, September 29, 2014 | 10:16 PM

Monday, September 29, 2014


W
hoever said a woman can’t do it all certainly wasn’t talking about SharLisa Di Peterson.

With an ever-expanding media career, the effervescent Dutch-Antillean/Dominican/New Yorker and webisode/radio personality, multi-media manager, writer [and the list goes on] can celebrate yet another major milestone – becoming the Editor-in-Chief (alongside the magazine owner, Janet Miller) of CARIBBEAN ENTERTAINMENT MAGAZINE.

Is she ready for the challenge? Of course!

In fact, SharLisa has already hit the ground running and vows to do her part to take the region’s entertainment industry to higher heights and provide a voice for Caribbean artistes in the United States and around the globe.

With a career in media that spans seven years, the 26-year-old is an emerging one woman media powerhouse. She seems to do it all – and then some.

Passionate about her career and conscious of the influence she now holds, SharLisa, affectionately called Spanish Dred, Sunshine or simply, Lisa, has worked with some of the hottest names in the music industry, including Mr. Vegas, Rupee, Beenie Man, Maxi Priest, Konshens, Cecile, Allison Hinds, Bunji Garlin, Fay Ann Lyons and Wyclef Jean, to name a few.

Her foray in media began at Laser 101fm radio station- a popular station in St Maarten where she co-hosted a well-known segment called Friday Fruckass with popular radio personality, GEE MONEY. After her first high school year at Milton Peters College in St. Maarten and finishing up [H.S] at Benjamin Cardozo High School [Queens, New York]SharLisa landed a job as an intern in the programming and scheduling/Music Video Acquisition department at the Caribbean music network, Tempo. Although it was a non-paying job at first, she took the opportunity to learn more about the media and later used those skills to help found the CARIBBEAN AMERICAN BUZZ (C.A.B) with a group of fellow interns. The C.A.B premiere series with season one to commence in October] quickly became a hot topic on the scene in the Tri-State area and her down-to-earth personality got her many gigs including hosting various talents, fashion and hair shows throughout New York City.
 

SharLisa, then, moved on to explore the other side of production at IRIEJAM RADIO 93.5 FM in New York City and began putting her writing skills to good use, contributing to various Caribbean and US magazines with one of them being BILLIONAIRE ENTERTAINMENT MAGAZINE.

Today, the talented entrepreneur is showing no signs of slowing down as she continues to not only contribute to media powerhouses, but, build her brand. She’s currently working on her very own multi-media empire, which she calls VIVA DUTCH productions, with the aim of producing and showcasing all facets of Caribbean culture. A true blend of Caribbean flavour with her diverse mix of ethnicities, SharLisa believes the region has a lot to offer the world.

Her tenacity and go-getter attitude can be traced back to her childhood.

Growing up with her maternal side of her family between the Dutch island of St. Maarten and the boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn, she quickly learnt the value of hard work and dedication.

SharLisa won numerous swimming and dance competitions as a youth and made up her mind that she would not be negatively impacted by her circumstances. She worked hard to achieve all her goals – even if it meant holding down three jobs, simultaneously.

With God, her number one source of strength, SharLisa beat life’s odds. And she did so in style.

A self-proclaimed workaholic, she confesses that she is always thinking about work, deadlines, and the next big story. But, when she does find some down time, she enjoys dancing, listening to music and traveling. She also loves a quick get away to Anguilla and Curacao.

This rising Caribbean star who is also looking forward to taking up a new role of red carpet host in the televised series DANCEHALL GOT TALENT and of course Editor in Chief of CEM and many other new chances to show and prove --but in many ways, her journey has only just begun.

Dominican Cornmeal and Coconut Cake

Writer : Caribbean E-Magazine on Sunday, September 7, 2014 | 10:09 PM

Sunday, September 7, 2014


A
repa is a Dominican cornmeal and coconut cake that rich and comforting that is sometimes made sweet, so it that can be served for breakfast, as a snack or even dessert with coffee or hot chocolate

 

 

Ingredients:


4 cups arepa corn flour
4 cups water
3 1/2 cups of milk (whole, reduced fat or skim)
2 12-oz cans evaporated milk
3 or 4 cinnamon sticks
1/2 cup raisins
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
2 ½ ups  coconut Milk
1 tbsp anise seeds
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp butter or margarine


Directions:


Add the arepa flour to a large bowl with the water. Stir to eliminate clumps. The flour will swell up, absorbing most of the water (this is what you want). Set aside.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, heat the milk over a medium flame. Add the evaporated milk, cinnamon sticks, raisins and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then add the coconut cream (don't substitute coconut milk, they are not the same thing), the vanilla extract, salt and anise seeds.

Stirring continuously, let the mixture come just to a boil.

Add the damp arepa flour. Mix well, breaking up the clumps, and let cook on the stove. Stir it every minute or two to stop it sticking.
Use half of the softened butter to grease a large baking pan.
When your arepa becomes a thick porridge like mixture, you can put it in the baking dish. Then take the remaining 2 tbsp of butter (may substitute with margarine) and cut it into thin slices (it’s easier to this with a stick of butter), then spread over the arepa,
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Friday, September 5, 2014


A
musical chronicling the attempted assassination of the legendary  Bob Marley will debut in Maryland next May. The musical entitled "Marley," was written and directed by British-born playwright/actor/director Kwei-Armah.

The premiere will be collaboration between Center Stage theatre in Baltimore and New York's Public Theater, where the musical will run from May 6 to June 15 2015.

Marley focuses particularly on the period of 1975 -1978, when there was an attempted assassination at the singer’s Hope Road residence in Jamaica and he later went into a self-imposed exile in London with his family due to fears over his safety.

Marley will also include music released during that period from his albums, Exodus, Kaya and Rastaman Vibrations

In a statement on Tuesday, Marley's daughter, Cedella Marley said that the family is thrilled to be working with Kwei-Armah on the musical.

“We are thrilled to be working both with Kwame and with Center Stage to bring part of our father’s story to life in a way that has never been done before. “When it comes to our father’s work and legacy, we have always been mindful in selecting the artists with whom we choose to collaborate. We couldn’t be more excited about the team that is assembled for this project.”

Workshops on "Marley" will be held in Baltimore and New York in the months ahead as the musical takes shape. Casting will begin soon.

Another musical “Nesta’s Rock” based on Bob Marley’s childhood will debut in Jamaica this coming January.
