Whilst Rastamouse, Da Easy Crew and friends have been busy solving mysteries and “Makin’ A Bad Ting Good” as part of their television adventures, a secondary layer of engagement has been developed.
This valuable layer of activity draws from the rhythm and rhyme of the original books producing an ‘aesthetic’ engagement through music and movement.
When compared to overall participation in music making, participation in music technology presents a very significant gender imbalance. As DJ and song-maker Scratchy embraces all aspects of the contemporary music-making process and provides a unique role model in the exploration of music and technology within music.
Combining existing Rastamouse themes, ideas, music and material with brand new audio, new graphics, newly adapted nursery rhymes and bespoke animation; Scratchy takes her place at the DJ decks talking directly to camera.
Inspired by Bagga T’s ‘Rock-A-Bye’ rap from Da Bag A Bling, Yo! Scratchy offers a number of Mouseland nursery rhymes loved by “da likkle baby mice!” Scratchy’s newly adapted rhymes will support year-round curriculum themes such as Spring, Easter and Christmas, whilst adding not only a Rastamouse twist, but a cultural one.
Yo! Scratchy’s newly adapted rhymes support year-round curriculum themes such as Spring, Easter and Christmas, whilst adding not only a Rastamouse twist, but a cultural one; allowing the audience to engage new ideas and experiences.
