Information: Preparation is overrated. Impulse is everything. Such was the rebellious wisdom that drove the sessions for Project Mama Earth's astonishing debut EP. In June 2017, five world-renowned musicians met in Devon England for a high-wire act unique in modern music. They had no songs. No chord charts. No game plan. No safety net. Nothing, in fact, but a plan to play and catch the sparks. Where a lesser band would have stumbled, the gauntlet was readily seized by the all-star Mama Earth lineup of Joss Stone (vocals), Nitin Sawhney (guitar), Jonathan Joseph (drums), Étienne M'Bappé (bass/guitar) and Jonathan Shorten (keyboards). "The possibility for catastrophe was huge," nods the drummer. "It could have completely tanked. But the minute everyone stood in the studio, before we even touched an instrument - I just knew."
"This album has flavours of everyone that's involved. Any egos were put aside and everybody was really working together, trusting each other and listening. I definitely felt pushed to perform well with those guys." Shorten adds.
Convening at Stone's home studio in rural Devon, this musical crack-squad didn't take long to feel each other out. "It was all very spontaneous," remembers Sawhney. "The sessions were all about making something in a short space of time, creating a vibe, listening to each other, coming up with ideas, being creative. Every time you work with great players, it's always a learning curve, no matter how long you've been playing yourself. These guys are superheroes, really, on their instruments. It was also trying to get into the swing of those rhythms and making sure that all the music reflected that, as opposed to just drums."
Meanwhile, Stone purposefully kept her own creative process separate from the four musicians. "I left them to do their own thing with the music in the studio," she reflects, "while I was cooking dinner in the kitchen. I deliberately didn't have any input in the music, because I didn't want to affect it - or it'd all come out hip-hop and R&B! Then they'd come across into the house, give me the track and I'd sit in the kitchen writing lyrics and melodies with my mum. So it was, like, 'You guys do you, and I'll do me - then we'll put it together'. And that's the way it worked."

"Mama Earth is not your average music," he continues, "and that's the point. The way we were able to put a rock vibe against an African rhythm on Waterfall, to me, is just stunning. It's a work of art. The counterpoint between the rhythms and cultures is really powerful. It starts off soft, but it's slamming. Entanglement is a beautiful orchestration of cultures too, the way Joss and Etienne orchestrate the melodies along with the tablas and other percussive elements, and combining those things with the Bikutsi.
"Some of my favourite moments," says M'Bappé, "were when Joss would listen to the music and you'd see the inspiration in her eyes, like she was feeling it. I was blown away by what the song became after she put on her vocal parts. She just has magic in her voice."
