Why do this ?
As a Jamaican, It seems like whenever we travel and speak to someone they are fascinated by our accent and try every which way to get me to say something else. I used to say to myself WHY don’t they learn to say it themselves and stop harassing me ? LOL. Well sadly, there is nothing for them to learn from, outside of listening to countless hours of Reggae music. SO we decided to do something about it.
WE WANT TO MAKE EVERYONE A JAMAICAN !!!!
What is the Rastamar-i app?
It's a Jamaican Language (Patois) learning app with a superbly unique spin on language learning altogether.
1. First go to "High"School and learn key words that will no doubt be an assest later.
2. After completing "High" School, take Rastamar-i through one of his many story board style episodes while he interacts with memorable and funny characters using the words you learnt in "High" School.
With over 10 story board style episodes, learning Jamaican (Patois) will be a blast !!!!! Characters are memorable and the situations are Hilarious
Example of some Episodes: Rastamari Goes to the Bank, Rastamar-i Party Time, Rastamar-i ITAL Cooking, Rastamar-i looking for HERB. Just a few of the many episodes we want to create !!!!
Who is Rastamar-i made for?
Anyone who wants to learn the coolest language on Earth, or Even for those who know it already but just want to test their knowledge and have some fun with a memorable and unique GAME.
So, what's the plan?
- Reach fundraising goal! Without this, nothing goes forward.

Who are we ?
We founders are all JAMAICAN "20 somethings" with backgrounds varying from Enterprise and Mobile App Development,(Black Russian and Mario) Web Development (Shadow) and Database Engineering (Ram Goat), Marketing, Project Management and Innovation Management (Daco). Therefore, we have the perfect mix of Nerds and Flashy personalities to make Rastamar-i a reality.
We have been fortunate enough to have travelled the Globe and have seen what the world has to offer. We now think its time we offer something back, outside of our GREAT MUSIC AND CULTURE.
Can I get it on my phone?
It will be available on iPhone and Android first, and hopefully more platforms after.
