Earlier this year Karrot worked with Flashing Lights Media on 10 new episodes of Magic Hands, the live action/animated visual music show, for deaf & hearing audiences. This time we focused on celebrating 10 amazing black musicians and some of their most toe-tapping songs!
Karrot focused on the musical representation through visuals, fun character action and storytelling and Flashing Lights Media framed each song with some historical perspective, highlighting important individuals or events tied to the songs themes, or broadly tied into each musician’s work.
4 new presenters, Semhar, Asnath, Chris & Tianah, teamed up with our regular animated cast, to perform songs such as Dancing in the Street, Wonderful World, & Something Inside so Strong, celebrating a broad range of musicians, from Bob Marley & Sister Sledge to Ella Eyre .
We’re proud to say the series has been airing again this month, as part of Black History Month on CBeebies and all 10 episodes are available on the BBC iPlayer too!
Here’s a quick look at our statues for each of the amazing artists! ...
