The songs on Same Sky were first created via BEYOND MUSIC’s online platform ( that invited musicians from all over the world to collaborate virtually and to go beyond their borders.  Behind BEYOND MUSIC is the non-profit Swiss BEYOND FOUNDATION, which aims to bring together cultures of the world through music in order to foster mutual dialogue and respect. It was co-founded by Tina Turner.  BEYOND MUSIC received 110 song submissions from artists from 48 countries and 55 genres, and selected 10 winning songs to be recorded for the first volume of what will be an on-going project. The 23 artists behind the 10 winning songs were flown to the famous Studios La Fabrique in southern France, and over the course of 12 days brought their songs to live with Klein, a world-class house band, and world-class engineers.
