Beyond Music

Create the songs of tommorrow

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 Beyond Foundation and Tina Turner. The aim is to jointly develop innovative pieces of music across cultures and genres. The most creative teams will be invited to a workshop and album recordings. Let's celebrate "oneness" in its cultural diversity and create the songs of tomorrow!
