I’m coming Back: from a dream to reality!

Peace Family.

I Hope y’all had a good weekend.
On this message we are continuing the short stories behind the music on the RuAch album, We Began these stories with the song River Nun, then “Out of the Mire”, This time lets talk abit about the featured track titled “I’m coming back”. I always say when one receives inspiration one has to be quick to act upon it to capture the idea before it disappears, Well this track has to be one of the best example’s of this.

Before adding this song I thought the album was complete, We recorded 24 tracks for the album of which I whittled down to 12 to make the album, & I had already planned to send the album master off on a Monday morning to be published, Little did I know a new song would rise only the previous day to this, I remember waking up from a dream at 5am on a Sunday morning, the day before I needed to send all the material off.

I had a dream that I was a soldier somewhere in the middle of a war zone close to a beach, But I was appointed in charge of rescuing the injured & bringing them to safety, So I would go to the sea shores & carry those injured individuals back to our camp where the soldiers can be looked after & nursed, As I was rescuing the injured all I was thinking of was a woman I loved & longed to be with again back at home, chances of survival were very slim but in the dream I had faith that I would see her again.

The determination was there not to be killed by crossfire while I am exposed carrying the injured to safety, But when I knew everyone I rescued was safe the dream took a sudden turn, & I found myself in a new place that seamed like a 1960s New Orleans, & I had a feeling of joy & happiness in that I survived a war & finally I could go & see my love again, On my way home to where I apparently lived in the dream I stumbled into a building, When I entered it this turned out to be an empty ballroom, But I could hear music playing, & it sounded like what one might define as “Free Jazz Music”.

I then awoke from my dream, The music in the dream kept playing while I was conscious, & I remembered there were certain different styles of music playing throughout the dream, Very rarely do I get to remember dreams as accurately as this one, but that dream was more like a Movie of which I dint only remember the picture but I remembered the soundtracks on each part of the dream.

Right then I knew this dream had to be included on the RuAch album.

That morning I contacted Carmine Manfredi our sax player & told him the dream, & asked him if he could help me with a very much-needed Sax piece on the “free jazz section” of the track.

That morning I went to our studio which we call “The Cave”, I played & recorded all the Drum parts, Bass, Guitars, & Vocals, Then Carmine came into the Cave from his job, it’s now 11pm, & he began to work on that section of the music until we were happy with it, I came back early the following Monday, mixed & mastered the track, Cut a new master disk & shipped the music off for publishing before midday that following Monday.

Today being a Monday I reminisced on that experience & thought I would share this message with you the family.

Sometimes we are slow to act & move with every ounce of inspiration we receive, I say move with your spirit to see your dreams accurately manifest into a physical existence.

So now I am wishing everyone who read this an inspirational & productive week.

Peace & blessings family

Ruach News: Take heart! 29/07/16

IMAG0348

Love & Unity people, I hope we have all had a positive & progressive week, This has been one of those inspiring yet heavy weeks for me personally, I recently learned that my great family friend, brother Julius Mutunga passed away this week. This came too sudden for the family, As this guy was a sent angel to us, This is one of those people of whom very few if not none could walk in his shoes. One strong individual!, Just like my father was, whom also has transcended. I remember me & Julius always talked about recording an album together, But the opportunity never came to pass. So I suppose we will Jam Again, But in another realm of existence, the higher entities. We love Julius, Rest in Power brother!, (on the picture Julius is on the electric guitar, & that’s Lil Vonj smiling on the bass)

My experiences in life have been extreme, especially for someone still in his 20s, we have witnessed & experienced the very WORST & the very BEST of the things in life, But this means nothing If one is not learning from experience, & through this  we come to understand our purpose in life, There are reasons why we are exposed to certain experiences. For me I realize that In actual fact I am in a privileged state, Because now I am able to share my experiences to others, providing comfort, motivation,  &  elevation to the people who are going through certain situations.

I try to use music as my MAIN vehicle to disseminate resolutions to people, I always have, & I will always will.

So with Spirit we remain working against the grain 24/7 Literally, because we also note down our dreams, “one of the greatest key parts in our life experience”.

Take heart people!.

The album Ruach is out on 261 stores online, You can’t miss it!.
I-Tunes being the most popular choice for downloads, Here is a special link to the 3 singles we released.
https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/ruach-single/id1138394081

Physical copies can be ordered directly through http://vonjruach.com/shop

I also learned that a few tracks are already in rotation on certain obscure radio stations!, so keep an ear out! As we are officially international!.

I will let you know when the new video is out on our channels.

We really thank you all for your support. Keep spreading the word.

Love & Unity from the RUACH family.

Vonj, Carmine, Martin, Mat, Garry.

Have a great weekend family.

Peace & Ruach People!

Y’all alright today?? y’all staying strong??, because remember…no matter what situation you are in?, good or bad?, there is only one thing that you can always aspire towards, RISING UP & Getting better within yourself & everything that you do!.

I’ve been in the midlands (England) doing session work for other folk, But nothing will compare to what is in store the day Ruach hits the stages!. I have always been about “LIVE” performance, & as much as we would like to build our reputation on “social media”, The real intention is to actually bring people OUT of the digital world & into the REAL world, No matter how sweet music may sound on a record/mp3, Nothing will ever compare to a live experience, This is why we should move towards appreciating musicians even more while they yet live, Because no matter how you may dig tunes like “So What”, No matter how you may dig “Purple rain”, That real & actual experience is gone with those artists forever!, & there are NO high end speakers, amplifiers, Full HD 3D, virtual reality, holographic systems that will ever come close to replicating the feeling received from an original live experience.

So “we want to bring you OUT!”, But first we are working towards setting the “right conditions”,  We look forward to inviting you to the party!

Meantime I have been doing research on what mainstream online store serves most convenient and offers a decent deal for both the artist & the consumer, Currently I recommend downloading Ruach through “Google play” our link is as follows..

https://play.google.com/store/music/album/Vonj_Ruach?id=B4ecfotssvzk4bn2s7535tasksq

Look out Next Wednesday the 27th!, for some RAW footage that will quickly take you through the journey in the studio (the cave) creating the Ruach album project, included will be sneak bites of the songs included on the album & also the tracks that were not included.

So Remember to spread the word & subscribe to the websites that we have 100% control over..

We love & appreciate your support people, never forget this.

Peace & blessings from the Ruach family

Peace & love family, I hope we are all doing well, going strong & living in the right spirit.

It has been a massive week on our side, a few events have taken place since the release of Ruach on 07/07/16, We are making it a mission to get this album across as far & as wide as we can, as we can evidently see the positive impact this album has already created to the one’s who have heard the music beginning to end. & We will always be thankful for the people’s support.

The written story behind Ruach can be seen on http://www.vonjruach.com, I am currently on the road editing a full documentary on the album which will be put out on the 27th of July.

The message is very much one of empowerment, The moral of this whole concept is to show people that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE if you put your mind & spirit into action!

Never Let the world Tell you “NO”, you are able to manipulate your strings of time!.

We thank everyone who have subscribed to vonjruach.com, & we are nearly 10.000 followers strong on vonjproductions.com, & we are grateful for all the beautiful emails people have sent. To those who I haven’t replied yet I shall get round to it as soon as I can.

We are only at the beginning stages of Ruachs release & TODAY you are able to buy the “Physical copies” Via this link. http://www.vonjruach.com/shop/ I know we are living in a “download era” but I would very much encourage you to buy something that you can physically touch.

We love you all

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 47 “Song of Thought”

listening is learning

whisper whisper,

where’s the wisdom,

can you perceive with your mind,

different colours, different sounds,

some place where people can travel,

through the speed of thought,

a destination where we don’t have to breath to live,

but we live in harmony,

MANTRA

Broaden your mind,

listening is learning learning is living in love,

SECOND PART

how long will we continue to live against our essence,

we are built innately to know the truth,

but you pick fear?,

But fear is the opposite of love!,

fear paralyses feeling ,

so listen to the silent one,

for the propaganda is loud,

how long will you hold your breath?,

MANTRA

Broaden your mind,

listening is learning learning is living in love,

THIRD PART

tell all the people not run,

tell all the people not to hide,

tell all the people not to fall,

tell all the people to be strong,

tell all the people to rise as one,

rise as one, RISE AS ONE,

MANTRA

Broaden your mind,

listening is learning, learning is living for love,

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 41 “River Nun”

RIVER NUN

  as we talk,

we are wasting away,

walls they stand,

while we sit and wait,

for the rays of the sun,

to bring us life………….

We wonder what was the cause of the wars,

angels fall but no broken bones,

Trees of greed who planted the seeds.

Second part

all that’s left are the prophesies

heads are rolling down a parted sea

land divide themselves

the rivers flow………….

Ships are built,

and they start to trade,

guns are made,

now your a slave,

it is [mourning] as they leave RIVER NUN.

the beginning

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

[BEGINNING]

This is the Beginning of another day
This is the beginning of a mystery
I am searching for the power to elevate your mind

Mantra
This is only just the beginning of my love

Second part
This World, I don’t understand
If I could I would disappear
But I am here for the people

Mantra
This is just the beginning of my love

Third part
Just open your eyes there’s no need to have to have to struggle in this world,
Just look at what your MONEY has done,
Bringing people closer to the gun and far apart from love,
And so now they set confusion in place,
And there’s no where for your mind to rest,
And so I came to turn you away from these destructions,
Ease your mind toward your mission.

Passage Out

This is the beginning of a heart that cares,

This is the beginning for your mind to rise,

I think they call this revolution……
