Nine Beats Collective
Somewhere between a story and a dream, there is a whisper of another world, a different rhythm rising…
NINE BEATS COLLECTIVE is an international tribe of troubadours, poets, rebels, provocateurs, sages & activists on the trail of the ancient Bible sayings known as ‘the Beatitudes’.
In this wild world, a growing number of people have begun to wonder if the Beatitudes might contain the keys to our liberation. These ancient sayings, spoken by Jesus, offer a nine-statement manifesto for a new world order. A counter cultural narrative for our times. A welcome not a weapon, tender not toxic, inviting not divisive. A call for a tribe of people to live life ‘nine beats to the bar’. In them we hear the whispers of another world, the invitation to a path of recovery – whatever your story, whatever your struggle, wherever you find yourself.
These ‘nine beats’ offer a nine-statement manifesto for a new world order. Hidden in plain sight and so often ignored, even by those who call themselves followers, they offer a radical alternative to the broken systems we’ve created. In them we hear the whispers of another world.
Across 3 continents, a group of world class musicians, artists, songwriters, theologians, activists & storytellers has collaborated on ‘Nine beats to the bar’ – an album of songs that searches for the essence of the beatitudes. Memorable songs of awakening, lament, reflection and hope take the listener on a journey into the nine beats.
An eclectic soundscape of R&B, soul, rock/pop, acoustic threads, classical, jazz/funk, African vibes, and a hint of gospel. A Haunting. A Cry. A new beat
