L'addio di Anna show Cast List
“L’addio di Anna” is a nostalgic franco-italian stylized melody of a cinematic/theatric nature - somehow the love and bright sadness are always there :-). The three main melody players however are far from this places geographically - clarinet ,played by brilliant musician of Iranian origins , duduk from Armenia and harmonica (melodica) … maybe this one the closest - Russian Federation. All of them playing the melody and improvising in a very touching and convincing way - even though our languages and cultures are different - our feelings are of the same nature. It’s fully expressed here and I am sure you will love it.

Night vision *Bolero) show Cast List
When I studied music , I heard that once you put a man and a woman in the same room and let them listen to “Bolero” by M. Ravel - by the end of the piece they will fall in love. Even though it’s just a fantasy - I like the idea of “viral” passion of this masterpiece … I used a paraphrase of the Bolero as a starting point for creation of “Night vision”, and then asked Jake and Daniel to go as far as possible from standard improvisational way of thinking…. The result is for you to judge. Enjoy and let your fantasy take you far away :)

Chilly Ahavati show Cast List
"When you will get to my house To the melodies of my love I'll open my door for you ..I'll give you my heart " It is a love song that I wrote, describing the deep love between me and my soul who yearns to fulfill its destiny without fear and trust its way in this world. In the song I speak with my soul and the Creator about my journey as a singer in this world but can also be interpreted as a love song between a woman and her lover. When Sasha asked me to send him a song for the Beyond Music project, I immediately thought about this song, which for me symbolizes my deep love for singing and music and the deep gratitude that I feel for the privilege and ability to sing I was very excited by the wonderful musical arrangement of Sasha and the playing of all the great and talented musicians in the song and I would like to thank them and Beyond Music for the opportunity and privilege Thank you and sending my love, Sharon

Sasha: Spending some time researching the “Artists” section of the platform I came across absolutely fantastic voices of Sepideh, Syssi and Sharon. Touched by their beauty and power I’ve decided to create a piece that each one of them will have a part and absolute freedom of expression. Basically it stands on improvisations of the ladies and a melody that I have written as a “child song” inspired by the conceptual idea of “the mothers voice as the first human voice we all hear”. As this voices maybe vary from place to place - they are all creating the same feeling in us - love. This is our take on it. Please - enjoy.

To JK... With love. show Cast List
A melody , dedicated to my dear friend and guitar player JK, that was a source for inspiration and left too early... Recorded with help of another friend with almost same abbreviation - JaKe, and one of the best music companions I've had - Thomi Geiger on soprano saxophone. There are some cello (Ioanna Seira) and violins on the background (Mihai Ilea and Javier Lopez Sanz) at the end, that made it much more vibrant and warm. Was a pleasure to work on this one.

La 'Allam show Cast List
The piece "La 'Allam" is simply a Love Song composed by Ali Asaad, it is a piece of Ali's current working on new Syrian Song formations, which is built on intimate spoken contemporary Syrian poetry (here the poet Hani Nadeem) with various dialects/accents of Syrian-Levantine Arabic. Reflecting nuances of Syrian youths and their concerns and struggles to establish normality and to be able to live love stories under the pressure of the last severe 8 years. This forms "a new identity" questions especially with the huge number of Syrian youths who moved to Europe recently. The new identity is reflected musically by collaborating with Russian Swiss-based arranger Sasha Shlain, and Swiss Saxophonist Thomi Geiger, trying to bring the Syrian Pop Song into its new orbit, to confront new musical textures and possibilities of arrangement, effected basically by Jazz settings and electronics, and to find its new paths of dialogue in its new society, targeting Syrians and Europeans at the same time.

The 11th Hour show Cast List
When I browsed the different participants in Beyond Music, I liked Sasha's musical background right away: Such an interesting blend of different cultures and skills! It is reflected in this track which is unconventional yet very groove-centered, including allusions to many different cultures and styles! In this track I play bass flute, traverse flute and Jew's harps.

Qarrart Aseeb (I decided to Leave) show Cast List
I got a call from the migration office in Switzerland that i have to leave the country tomorrow out of nowhere because my work permit was not extended, although i studied, worked and lived there for 5 years. This triggered many emotions in me and made me taste a little tiny bit of what refugees go through all over the world. Before i departed to Cairo, i met Sasha, and i showed him the song i wrote about my experience. We let our souls express all we could feel and wish to create this piece.
