A.R.Rahman is one artiste who keeps collaborating with various other international artists. Now the Academy Award winning singer-composer has joined hands with rock legend Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart of ‘Eurythmics’, Damian Marley and Joss Stone to form a band called ‘Super Heavy’. The members met a year and a half ago at a studio in Los Angeles and started jamming and writing songs. They have more than a dozen songs now with each artist bringing their own individuality and musical influences.

Speaking about this, Rahman says, “18 months ago Dave Stewart, Mick Jagger, Damien Marley, Joss Stone and me experimented at a studio in Los Angeles, trying to write songs which had meaning. We had a couple of more sessions after that trying to perfect every song that was written and presently we have around 16 to 18 songs and all the songs have a world sound by contributions from all of us. Dave’s and Mick’s incredible musicality and Joss’ soul singing, Damian Marley’s Jamaican influence and philosophies and me bringing musicality from my world.”
