THE BEYOND HISTORY
In 2008 BEYOND MUSIC launched with Tina Turner, Regula Curti and Dechen Shak-Dagsay to celebrate their various cultural and spiritual backgrounds through music. Their first album, «BEYOND (Buddhist and Christian Prayers)», received the blessing of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This platinum-selling album sparked international interest, and it became clear that BEYOND held the seed of something larger. It would become part of a global awakening toward mutual appreciation and dialogue between cultures and spiritual traditions.
In 2011, empowered by their initial success, the three singers produced a second album, «CHILDREN BEYOND». Together with thirty children representing six different cultures and religions they created new music to foster understanding, compassion, and tolerance. The Gold award-winning album was selected to become soundtrack of the film «Planting Seeds of Mindfulness» initiated by Thich Nhat Hanh, Master of Mindfulness.
In 2014 Sawani Shende Sathaye, master of Indian classical music, representing the Hindu tradition, joined BEYOND Music, and the four women singers released a third album, «LOVE WITHIN BEYOND», Praise to all the Divine Mothers, Goddesses and Saints. Enriched through Indian musicians and Hindu prayers the music gained access to the world of yoga. This production was given the honorable TARA Award, a tribute for compassionate actions in society.
