Joss Stone recently released her collaborative Project Mama Earth, and to celebrate Provogue sent us a canvas art print to give away to one lucky customer – we’re one of only four indie stores to get one!
To enter the drawing, send an email* with the subject “Mama Earth” HERE by midnight Thursday, Nov. 23 (Thanksgiving!). We will draw a name at random and notify the winner on Friday, Nov. 24 (Black Friday!).
Project Mama Earth started when British soul singer Joss Stone and her former musical director Jonathan Joseph hit on the Mama Earth concept of an album driven by the dynamic rhythms of Africa. A band was assembled from all corners of the music world: Jonathan’s compadre Étienne M’Bappé, the dazzling Cameroon-born multi-instrumentalist whose résumé spans from John McLaughlin to Robben Ford; Jonathan Shorten, who had produced much of Stone’s studio catalogue between penning some of the biggest hits for acts including Gabrielle and (again) Joss Stone. Finally, there was Nitin Sawhney: the genre-slipping wildcard and one-man musical tidal wave whose collaborations take in Sting, Paul McCartney and the London Symphony Orchestra. The five musicians convened at Stone’s house, where the musical squad didn’t take long to feel each other out. Music was spontaneously written on the spot, without any preparation. In the meantime, Stone purposefully kept her own creative process separate from the four musicians.
