Thrilling music

Apart from Rahman, the band comprises Mick Jagger, Joss Stone, Dave Stewart and Damian Marley. It’s with the second song, the one that just released online, that things get truly delicious.

Rahman’s the obvious driving force behind Satyamev Jayate, but there are many mouth-wateringly disparate musical styles at play here. Rahman leads the gang on a choral introduction about what satya does, this one centres around the chorus — a simple, high energy one.

Satyamev Jayate chorus led by good old Mick Jagger has the rockstar singing in a free, clear and soaring voice. Rahman does his trademark soulful sounds in the background while Marley and Stone come in briefly. But it’s hard not to picture Jagger eagerly swallowing up this song. If you’ve been wondering what Rahman has been doing, it looks like it’s worth waiting for!
