Eternity
This song is about love and death, and hope and fear. It’s about that space in between this life and the next. It’s a deep journey of a song that represents the universal human experience of living with certain death, and uncertain life, but with love as the force that gives us all coherence. The meaning in the song is heightened even more at this time with the global lockdown happening, and it aims to be both a balm and a challenge to the spirit. As the lyrics say ‘Can you hear, can you feel, the coming of eternity, we must face it, face it, with love or fear’ .

Aval Allah
"Aval Allah" is based on the poetry of Kabir a 14 th century Bhakti(celebration of love) poet from India . His poetry has remained a pillar of unification of people divided in religious , caste , sex based divisions etc . While leading a music workshop with school children on an organic farm tour to help them understand nature of organic farming , one of the students started singing Kabir . "Dheerey Dheerey Hey Manna Dheerey Sab kuch Hoye , Maali Seenchey Sau Ghada Ritu Aye Phal hoye" which means Slowly slowly o mind , slowly all things happen , the gardener sows seeds in 100 pots and the seasons come and plants grow and ripen . This aptly captures the nature of organic farming where things are in harmony with nature. This is the opening verse of the song. The Aval Allah is a very important prose of Kabir registered in Guru Granth Sahib of the Sikhs as well . He describes the universal light which unites us all and thus pointing there cant be any good or any bad or differences . Kabir was neither a hindu or muslim , his birth is shroud in mystery , he was a weaver and his music became very popular and still remains . With help of Beyond music we have carried the energy of Kabir across various different parts of world , Kazakhistan , Belgium and Switzerland . We have given it ,a beautiful modern interpretation to his poetry . The song is an invitation to grow and feel united in our various differences . Its apt for the time we are living in .

MOMENTO
Andreia: When I received the invitation from Dear Raushan to let me be inspired by her improvisation, at the time with the name wave.34, I felt massively flattered because it was an amazing free piece, without a squared pulse, and also because she entrusted me with something so huge, and without reservation she gave me her total trust! An improvisation with its own breathing and light, an improvisation made by such a unique instrument with which I had already felt enormous intimacy in previous partnerships! This piece quickly became the MOMENTO - Moment, in all my heart. For nothing is more important than that. The Moment. The Mountain. The Shepherd with his healthy and free flock, walking and making music. There it was my Portuguese root trying to recover this memory of this very special soundscape, which kept man close to his most assertive and unpretentious guide, Nature. Today in Portugal, the "Chocalho" - rattle, and the landscape it represents is considered Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, due to its tendency to extinguish itself and thus also extinguish this very important bond. Cause there was a time when man knew, loved, cared for and thanked each animal he ate at his family table, and it was not so long ago, remember? You must, please.

VIDALA DE LA ESPERA
VIDALA DE LA ESPERA Suddenly everything stopped in infinite silence. Humanity is on pause waiting for its destiny. It is time to make a decision, the wind hides his voice, and nobody hears the music of the spheres. We must be one again: Humanity and Mother Nature. Faith and hope in our sacred music… Faith and hope in our sacred humanity… Beyond our sacred Music, beyon love. This song was composed during the Covid quarentine with these amazing artists and people. Kazakhstan and its millennial voice, Amsterdam, Cuba and South America. April - May 2020.

Nature Procession
This song attempts to contrast an aspect of our life on earth, bound by the base and the material with our eternal and greater life "in the forests" of our spiritual identity. It serves as a reminder of who we really are and the necessity of seeking this greater truth that resides within us all expressing it and exhorting others to do the same. The song begins by describing how in this world we are ultimately part of a herd, being pushed to and from in a world of deceit and concludes with a call to action of "Give me the flute, and sing," in which the sound of the ancient reed flute symbolizes the primal vibration of all creation and true freedom is found among the wilds of the self, and the company of spiritual kin who know that “Immortality lies in a song” and not to concern themselves with the mundane. The song was adapted from Khalil Gibran’s poetry collection "Al Mawakib - Processions". The voice is part of a band that accompanies these contrasting movements almost as in a play. With a mix between sounds and languages of very distant cultures and instruments from different parts of the world, this song offers us a journey to our interior, our ancestors, our future and our relationship with the world we inhabit.

Seeds of love
"Seeds of love" is song written by Bhoomitra from his experiences with organic farmers . We all grow up surrounded by agriculture but there is a big disconnect in our society as to what is happening to the seeds which are the very essence of our food . Technologies to control seeds have been invented and poisons are being placed now inside the seed so that it doesnt replicate. Seeds of love expresses the work being done by an organic farmer , where he sows his love and grows with the earth . He wants to be with Seeds which will recreate themself , thus he will be free and strong . But in his path there are struggles and problems along his way but he keeps on going . Song also reflects on journey of a seeker along the path. Song is a fusion of classical indian music with western music . To give it a feel of a global collaboration, working with Raushan we have brought Kazakh traditional folk elements . Ariel Bart brings New york energy with her Harmonica . Gaetan brings the soft delicate yet powerful Double Bass kind of like Belgian beers and chocolate blends. Andreia brings Portugese adventure spirit with her percussions to this track . The mood of the son is soft and reflective .

Tu Meri Sursari
"Tu meri sursari" is expression of love for the great River Ganga .She is a source of great inspiration and love for all of us involved in this piece. We have all been touched by her magical energy and culture. We all are aware of the dangers the Ganga and all the other river systems of the world face in this so called modern age. My teacher Ustad Asad Ali Khan had mentioned you can hear all the notes of the music sitting next to Ganga . In the Guru Granth Sahib the word "Sursari" is used for Ganga . Sursari means the Saree of Musical notes . The song explores a musicians loving relationship with the river , the time spent listening to its flows and music and singing along with it . This love makes us want to protect it and mother nature . We want her to reach the sea in purity and bliss and continue on her cyclical journey . This flow is her life and also ours . Its time humanity woke up to River consciousness .

Hands to Heal
A few years ago, musician Juan Barallobres was visiting Isla Maciel, a very poor neighbourhood in Buenos Aires. As he walked around, he saw a group of women working. They were taking heavy sand from the river to clean and sell to local builders. Juan recorded the unique sounds they were making with their hands as they worked. This affected him greatly and gave him the inspiration for the song. HANDS TO HEAL talks about women’s work, their struggle, and their energy all around the world. It’s a song about the way women everywhere tirelessly work to transform the hard things in their lives, to make them better. It's about mothers, and sisters, and grandmothers, it's about artists, farmers, and industrial workers. The song is for all those who work humbly with their hands and hearts to make a better world. But above all, the song is about the hope that through their energy, through their hands, we can feel the possibility of a new humankind based on justice, love and nature.

Satpurush (The True Spirit)
In our quest to make the best of life mankind is lost in finding meaning and balance with the universe, and because of that we are hurting ourselves and our environment. Just like a leaf from a tree, we are drifting, not knowing what to do, where to go or what the future holds. Inspired by Hindi folk sourced from : Pati Raam Maravi ,Pradhan priest of Gond tribe in the Garakamatta Village , Dindori district , Madhya Pradesh , India

Uivo de Lamento
It is time to let go of the last lament. And let it sound in unison, human and animal, from the top of the most explored mountain, to the most burned tropical forest, passing through all the plasticizing seas and rivers. Plasticized also proves to be the world economy driven by capitalism that does not reward equality in this so-called, Animal Kingdom. Plasticized is also humanity and all its extraordinary existence, when subjected to this very recent invention in the entire history of the Kingdom. It is time to redesign economic systems so that they really serve people and the planet. Systems of biological inspiration and transformative innovation that fit the concept of regenerative cultures. To preserve and foster regional cultures and make new laws based on indigenous and aboriginal knowledge, which we all know can teach us a lot about how to live for many years without destroying the local ecosystem. Now we have the opportunity to mix the best of the past and the best of technological innovation, and move towards a world that serves everyone. This song also represents this dialogue, with Sina Ubi, a young musician from Tanzania very close to the ancient repertoire of his culture, and Raushan, from Kazakhstan, playing the shamanic instrument Kyl Kobyz, made with horsehair has a lively and natural sound, considered magical reproducing the wolf's fantastic howl. It was this instrument that ended up giving the definitive title to the song.
