New York, NY (Top40 Charts) BEYOND MUSIC has unveiled the music video for "Our Colors" - an original collaborative song that celebrates global friendship and cultural richness, and includes nearly all of the 23 BEYOND MUSIC artists that participated in this first-of-its-kind new project. BEYOND MUSIC Volume One / Same Sky brings together 23 artists from 17 countries who have met and networked through the new online collaborative platform (https://beyondmusic.org) to create a definitive global music album, overseen and produced by 2019 GRAMMY Producer of the Year nominee Larry Klein.


Today, Billboard premiered the video and spoke with Larry Klein about the making of it. Read the article here: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/8542500/beyond-music-our-colors-video

"Our Colors" was created with the collaboration of almost all BEYOND MUSIC artists during the recordings of Same Sky at the prestigious "Studios La Fabrique" in France and offers a fascinating look into the recording process. It began with a string arrangement by Danish violinist Andreas Bernitt, who said the following:

"Meeting the other BEYOND MUSIC artists at Studios La Fabrique in France was a life changing experience - so much special multicoloured talent gathered in one place! I wanted to create something special, through which, we could all connect - and contribute with our different cultural and musical backgrounds."

Andreas invited the BEYOND MUSIC artists to play something on top of his string line to ensure all artists left their musical fingerprint on this song.

BEYOND MUSIC Founder Regula Curti and CEO Konstanze Wiedemann expanded on the song's message: "The fundamental spirit of BEYOND MUSIC is unity in diversity. Music has the power to embrace everyone by honoring their culture, race, tradition and style. 'Our Colors' celebrates each musical expression, vocally or instrumentally, for its distinct and unique characteristics. By unifying diverse human sound colors makes music more brilliant and affecting."

Tina Turner, Co-Founder and ambassador of BEYOND MUSIC said: "I see humanity in this way. By honoring each other's ethnic, religions, and cultural backgrounds, we become stronger and happier, brightening the cosmic masterpiece of artwork that is our world."

Recently, the project's producer Larry Klein appeared on Southern California's KPFK, as well as KPCC's The Frame to discuss working on the project. Read more at GRAMMY.com, Tape-Op and Forbes as well.
