THE CREATIVITY AWARDS

" Be the change, you want to see in the world"

Mahatma Gandhi

COLLABORATE IN MUSICAL VERSATILITY AND INNOVATION

Beyond Music provides a space for artists of all cultures and backgrounds to inspire each other and collaborate in musical innovation. In this spirit of unity, we strive to create a world of togetherness through a language that is understood across all borders: music. Artists are encouraged to work together, in tune with the core values of Beyond Music: mutual inspiration, compassion, dialog and diversity.

Independent of the selection of artists invited to participate in the album recordings of the Beyond Music Project, the Beyond Foundation regularly honors outstanding collaborative works submitted to the Beyond Music Project with the Creativity Award, endowed with 4,000 US dollars per awarded composition.

"We award prizes to collaborations that demonstrate a passion for creativity and musical versatility, that embody the spirit and values of Beyond Music in an outstanding way," says Regula Curti, Founder of Beyond Foundation. The winning teams will be informed by email and will be presented on the Beyond Music platform.

 

 

WINNING TEAM OF THE FIRST CREATIVITY AWARD

The Beyond Foundation is pleased to present the 1st Creativity Award to the collaboration "Kijanisha the Planet (Regreen the Planet)", which was created by three artists: Anna Kattoa from Tanzania, Nic Lagasse from Canada and Msafiri Zawose from Tanzania. 

"Kijanisha the Planet (Regreen the Planet)" is about the need to be aware of environmental destruction, but not to remain in shock and grief. The song is calling on you to take action to protect nature and do something about it!

We find the melody and rhythm stirring and the beat uplifting. Building up the song with more and more instruments creates a high energy. You feel the journey between Canada and Tanzania. We like the strong voices of Anna and Msafiri and the great performance of Nic. The Beyond Foundation is happy for the team of "Kijanisha the Planet (Regreen the Planet)".  They will receive 4.000 US dollars for their collaboration.

Kijanisha the Planet (Regreen the Planet)
This song is a call to reconnect with nature and regreen the planet. The lyrics speak of dire environmental issues, but the music will make you want to dance. There's no need to sit around being sad about the world - grab a shovel, plant a seed and groove! The roots of the composition are Msafiri Zawose and Anna Kattoa's impassioned vocals. The song then travelled back and forth between Tanzania and Canada as more instruments were added, growing slowly and steadily like a tree.
