Beyond Music, https://www.beyondmusic.org/, was launched in 2018 by the non-profit Swiss Beyond Foundation and our Co-Founder Tina Turner. We are a non-commercial, invitation-based community for professional musicians, composers, singers & songwriters representing all cultures and music styles.
The idea is that the artists on the platform connect with each other, across all musical styles and countries, form collaborations and develop new, innovative music pieces together on a specific musical theme. The most interesting collaborations will be awarded prize money and the tracks will be newly produced.
Every year a Beyond Music Project will be held under the guidance of a renowned producer. The producer of our first album was four-time Grammy Award winner Larry Klein. The producer of the second album, which was released on February 26th, is the legendary Manu Katché. The producers of Vol.3 are
