Let's unite the
world with music

Beyond Music

Create the songs of tomorrow

We are an invitation-based community for professional musicians, composers, singers & songwriters representing all cultures and music styles. Founded in 2018 by the non-profit Swiss Beyond Foundation and Co-Founder Tina Turner. The aim is to jointly develop innovative pieces of music across cultures and genres. The most unusual music formations are honoured each year at the Beyond Music Project with 80,000 US dollars in financial awards. In addition, the best pieces of music form the Beyond Music album, which will be designed by alternating renowned producers. Let's celebrate unity in its cultural diversity and create the music of tomorrow!
