RuAch Review by: Vents Magazine

Peace & blessings people, We are now on the road towards performing the music off the album project RuAch Live!, Which we are all very much looking forward to doing!.

Like I have mentioned here in the past there’s nothing that can beat a good live performance, Records can sound good on CD & there’s an art to creating a good sound in the studio, But a group needs to be able to deliver a performance sounding just as good if not better than the record, & this is what we have been working on. The team is in place & things are looking great!. We have a pleasant surprise for ya’ll coming soon!

Meantime I would like to thank Larry Toering from Vents Magazine for his review of our album which you can read bellow, & also we thank you the people for your support!, As this enables us to build towards doing greater things in the future.

Love & Unity family

“If music is from the heart then it will carry no impurity, this would mean that music can’t be misused to fulfil any self-threatening intention, as the heart will never contradict itself, Negative intention surely arises from the delusions of one’s thoughts for it is only in one’s ‘knowing’ that springs truth.” -VonJ

There is a truth to spirit and a spirit to truth, and that is what you take away from Ruach, the latest CD from VonJ. It kicks off with “Out Of The Mire” which has a cool tribal beat fade-intro. Once it cooks up you know it’s on. The guitar starts to boil along with it and you feel like you’re listening to either Santana in the late 60s, or the equivalent. But there are some harmonics applied that bring it into the twenty first century before some further bombast brings some vocals into it, and everything dies down into some sweet acoustic notes before it’s over.

It is a pretty awesome opener to get you going, but it doesn’t stop there with this dynamic multi-instrumental wizard. “Skin Deep” proves to rock hard as well, with even more soul because the vocals step right up and impress. And this one features killer guitar and bass solos. These guys have some serious cops that must be further explored. It is a fantastic unison display before going back into the vocal chorus, which just repeats the top little a few more times. There are a lot of tracks on this album, and only so much review space, but these two pump up the whole set with fury as the rock and swing with funky swagger. They simply can’t be denied as the epic tracks they are, but this CD goes in several directions.

The jazzier side of things kick in on “I’m Coming Back” which gets into some great jazz guitar and sax interplay. It also manages to go in other directions as well. This is an amazing piece to say the least. It’s about coming back to shock the world. A very progressive number that sort of ends without warning and contains very little vocals, not unlike the first track but in another musical galaxy. An out of sight one, at that. You just can’t set it down after this. It is not something you get every day. The musicianship is impeccable, but the arrangements loose without being sloppy.

Other tracks like “Lady Night” are of the slower pace with more poetic lyrics, while “Trails Of Eldoret” bring out more Spanish guitar and very spiritual feelings. You get that same feeling with the coolness of “River Nun” as well, with its hauling horn and crashing cymbals. You get the feeling you’re both inside and outside on this, as it holds some esoteric lyrics, a liquid bass line and some searing guitars. It pulls no punches, as does most of the disc. You can’t help but get swept up into this if you’re really a music lover of all types from mellow to hard rock, world and even some new age and spoken word, where it borders on defying categories. If none of that works, you’re wired to the wrong device, as this is no swift show, it is a long player that will please without question, as long as that is your thing. And it can bring out the soul lover in any rocker and the rock lover in any soul, funk and world music lover alike.

It has everything from the lighthearted guitar of “Experience,” to the upbeat and inspiring “Nu-Times.” The use of all instrumental effects are applied with clever skill to make a sonically gratifying release that I’m sure holds up to Vonj works, so it should please anyone following as well as bring attention from whatever direction the wind blows it.

In-closing it is a great release, with the guitar being the strongest and the production being the weakest values, made up by some fantastic playing and singing by all and taking it out with a bold cover of “Superstition.”

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 43 “Song of nature”

WAY TOWARDS SUCCESSDon’t believe,

you got to know,

what are you flexing?,

truth’s or lies?,

if you do not care?,

life will come and bite you, you know where,

if you want to make it?,

you must be strong,

carrying on,

follow nature!,

Second part

somewhere along the way,

we became slaves,

the world keeps changing,

but the tricks remain the same,

they are making it harder,

to be yourself in this world,

but because I care,

I am strong,

carrying on,

I am nature,

Third part

I cannot begin to imagine,

how much better life would be,

if we did not fall for the trick-nology,

look behind you,

you do not have a dynasty,

but it is not too late to change your destiny,

I cannot say that it is going to be an easy ride from now on,

but the only way to towards success,

is to follow the principles of nature ,

Mantra

use your nature to love another,

come together,

mind to mind,

heart to heart,

culture to culture,

nation to nation,

You are Nature X3

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 23 “Real Condition”

These are all expressions that came through my heart. I have written these pieces to fit in within a musical format. What you read here has already been musically recorded, I hope you enjoy these messages family. Love; Vonj.

REAL CONDITION

Intro section – post instrumental music

Now I would like to take this funky opportunity

to bring up the subject of “Reality”,

as real as real can be,

 I will see you over on the other side,

Cut the beat…………..

Second part 

can real be you can real be me, yes it can, though sometimes we are never really our true selves and try to be someone we are not usually to fit in with a concept or a group. but what we are really doing is escaping from reality, fooling our self thus continuing the process into fooling others. 

So brothers and sisters if you want to be yourselves don’t listen to TV, news papers or magazines,  because they are all machines that all tie together to stop you from becoming yourself. 

real is always an experience no matter how negative or positive we may think it can be, the truth is what was real to you in the past made you who you are today and what is real to you now will determine your FUTURE. 

I like the subject of reality because there’s never an argument or debate because reality is self evident, though the problem is that Lies have been told within society for so long that our perception of what is real and what isn’t has been changed,so here is first hand example of reality in first world living………………….. 

I was born in this conveyor belt, Started out watching cartoons….Schooling Institutes…….Hypermarket…, “that makes you hyper”, Universities, then I got into Debt.

“Now the system has got you!”, 

Now you need to work longer hours,

So you can pay your debt, “you got to be a slave” you got to pay your mortgage, “for what?” for the house of your government, how long did it take you to earn the money to buy property? Answer me?. 

MANTRA

What they scared of? Education!

What they scared of? Education!

What they scared of? Education!

What they Scared of?

EDUCATION!!!

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 4 “Wisdom & Light”

These are all expressions that came through my heart. I have written these pieces to fit in within a musical format. What you read here has already been musically recorded, I hope you enjoy these messages family. Love; Vonj.

“WISDOM & LIGHT”

Kill the wise man, “Words From the spades”,

Driven from the land for the trouble they made,

As the dust settles down, the depression awakes,

Now the path is clear, do they see another day?

Second Part.

{Can you see the future?}, unfold through the great scrolls?

Did you hear about the man who tried to change history?

Was buried in the wall, Soldiers left in Acheronian!

The principals of life hidden out of sight

Mantra.

Search is on for wisdom and light x2

Third Part.

Story> ready> written>, “time turns the page”

Patience to the guided man “who learns with age”

But he’ll never fall to the pit of doubt

With the right key he opens the door to the {light}

Fourth Part

The world seems bellow understanding

As it spins, under the sun

If it found what is beneath the very pith;

{Skies and rainbows will be felt}

Mantra

Search is on for wisdom and light x4

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 3 “Page of an Age”

 These are all expressions that came through my heart. I have written these pieces to fit in within a musical format. What you read here has already been musically recorded, I hope you enjoy these messages family. Love; Vonj. 

     PAGE OF AN AGE      

I was born in a land

where the ground was complete

flew back in time

where I came to meet my destiny

made many friends

I never made an enemy

because of one thing we agreed

the world is out of unity..

one thing we agree

the world is out of unity!

Mantra

We have come a long ways

We should know right from wrong

when will we ever understand

The way to our heart

Second part

reflection flashed through my screen last night

the deception was blinding

a transceiver through my speaker woke me up at dawn

through my ears come waves of misconception

Sometimes I want to stay away

pay no heed to what’s really going on

but I realise

there’s a battle to be won

I realise

there’s a battle to be one

Rp-Mantra

We have come a long ways

We should know right from wrong

when will we ever understand

The way to our heart

Vonj – Words of Songs Chapter 1 “blood for money”

These are all expressions that came through my heart. I have written these pieces to fit in within a musical format. What you read here has already been musically recorded, I hope you enjoy these messages family. Love; Vonj.

 

BLOOD FOR MONEY

Mr Governor

You Need to think Now

Billions waiting for the answer

High expectations for the winds to change direction

High communication but they say goodbye to action

Behind closed doors I wonder what they say

In front of the window of mediocrity They say they pave the way

They inspired confusion to all dimension

the intention to a global end 

First Set of mantra’s

So what’s with this recession

Bringing us frustration

breaking our foundation

this is not progression

Your false promises and policies striking poverty in this rich world 

Second Part

People, People, People

we need to work together

receive a connection

Stop relying on every word that’s funded

Stop the fearing its time for mental healing

Look within you know you’ll find the meaning

in-spite of their strategical sophistry majority power concurs

so lets make amendment to wipe this social injustice

Claim your land

Second set of Mantra’s

Wipe out Confusion

Wipe out Delusion

Wipe out Corruption

Wipe out Destruction

Final Mantra

No Blood for money x4
