Ruach album Reviewed by Marc From Proggnosis, in Canada.
I really did not know what to expect before listening to Ruach by Vonj, a Kenya born artist now living in the UK. Looking at his website made me prepare myself for ambient or even meditation music. Well only after a few seconds listening to Ruach I knew my supposition was way off.

What we get on this very good album is a mixture of R&B, Jazz, Pop, Soul, Blues, Hard Rock and even a hint of Prog.  Vonj is the main man of this musical project. He plays Bass, Guitar and is also the lead vocalist. He is a great lead singer. To me his voice is pretty close to George Benson’s, but Vonj often sings with more muscle than Benson. His guitar playing, always excellent, ranges from very smooth and silky to almost Hendrix like at times, and he shows equal dexterity on the bass. Vonj is supported by excellent musicians on percussions and drums with Carmine Manfredi contributing some cool saxophone on the jazzier tracks.

As much as I can tell all the songs (but one) are original compositions, covering a variety of genres while still remaining coherent enough to give Ruach an album feel, not just being a collection of  tracks. The last song, a cover of Stevie Wonder’s ”Superstition” is done in a bluesy way that made me completely rediscover it. A great finish to an excellent album.

Ruach is perhaps not the proggiest album I will review this year, but it is certainly one I will continue to listen to on many occasions. Highly recommended indeed.

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
& we are independently working to deliver to you our best works

Love & Unity from the RUACH family

A Music In the making: Introduction

Here we see a dream actually becoming a reality. This compilation of cuts mark the middle to a completion of a new album I am creating, The release will be this year “2016”, With enough support I hope to circumvent this with a series of live shows. Life experiences play the key roll toward the inspiration for this album. This one is for the people. So I just opened up a YouTube channel to give people a chance to perceive a progression of a musical sort.

Love & Light.

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 49 “Song of Dreams”

dreams

“Song of dreams”

I see my life,

a stone being chipped,

the world made me rough,

but my edge is sharp,

the dreams I had, have all come true,

But I dream a new,

to reach out to you,

Mantra

Dream, make your dreams manifest,

Spring something new,

 that is why we are here,

Second Part 

ego people,

can break your heart,

but I remain humble,

and run them down,

love takes courage,

love needs silence,

silence springs dreams

so that you can sour,

Mantra

Dream, make your dreams manifest,

Spring something new,

 that is why we are here,

X2

Third part

so have no fear,

for dreams are really there to help you,

watch, look, and see, and pay attention,

for every silent symbol there is a reason,

there is always a becoming,

so witness what is beneath your eye’s,

Forth part

Dream,

not for money for that is a nightmare,

Dream,

that you are a king or a queen pick up your crown,

Dream,

how to inspire peace and harmony,

Dream,

a better way to communicate,

Dream,

How to stop the [tell lie vision],

Dream,

methods of how to stop all wars,

Mantra 

Dream, make your dreams manifest,

Spring something new,

 that is why we are here,

X2,

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 16 “Time to Change the Game”

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.

TIME TO CHANGE THE GAME

Is it you or is it me

there’s no story’s in the papers

is it you or is it me

on the TV screens pretenders

is it you or is it me

jokers on the radio

now this is personal

exploitation exaltation

money is the name of their game

Mantra

It is time to change the game

It is time to pave a new way

Second part

That was then this should be now

put true emotion to motion

that was then this should be now

put the notion to creation

that was then this should be now

get on your feet and lead the fleet

now this is personal

Exploitation exaltation

Money is the name of their game

Mantra

It is time to change the game

It is time to pave a new way (x2)

Extension

Sleepless nights I watch the sunrise after the dawning I cant help but realize…how the world could get better if we put fear aside

Mantras

It is time to change the game

It is time to pave a new way (x2)

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 7 “Violet Omen”

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.

“VIOLET OMEN”

Rising minds at constant ease,

Fight each day just to be heard,

The evening kings kissed the desolate fiends,

Now our bitterness transcends control,

Transparent cause to loose responsibility,

feuds are made and few they laugh,

while we lay in bed with the times,

draw your eyes from the ink that lies,

SECOND PART

The war for the truth is long like the river Nile,

there’s no aptitude in the multitude,

Candles lit but the spark not shown,

Can you exceed your dignity?,

The answer comes in form of a question,

why are we so blind,

while signs of meaning show everywhere,

Look to yourself this is real,

don’t set yourselves for decontrol,

MANTRA’S

Sing along, Sing Along,

If you want to know,

the secret to end it all,

bring peace of mind for all,

Let it out, Let it out,

what is in your soul,

show examples of love,

make them all want to know.

Vonj – Words of songs Chapter 6 “Over Draconian”

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.

OVER DRACONIAN.

Feel your way in,

to a place you’ve never been,

liberty exchanged for pain,

unforgivable defines,

Is this just a dream?,

or a vision of reality? ,

SECOND PART

wake up to the sounds,

shuddering are the grounds,

Mines and minds entangle,

and all is veiled from the fool,

MANTRA

Open your eyes,

and you will realize,

a brighter day a better place

a stronger heart and eased mind

THIRD PART

In the end of it all,

Regrets they are tall,

the third chance is erased,

but they still think they won?

FINAL PART

Greed is their only weapon

and you know this will not last long,

because destiny is our ammunition,

Over – Draconian,

Over – Draconian

…Over!.

Vonj – Words of Songs Chapter 2 “tell us the truth”

       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.           

                                                  

TELL US THE TRUTH

Constellations made of man

Tales done untold

Contention in the air

Men divide themselves

They disprove the evidence

All in the name of dividend

Beauty in the mask

Ugliness is brunt within

some hide in ignorance

Knowledge seems omitted

You know its predicted

Time to change your passageway 

Mantra

You are the blinded rounded and hunted,

Remove your shroud, get out!; the dark

tell us the truth X2

Second Part

If they looked in the mirror

Their souls would crumble down

Yes I speak of everyone

Enthralled to your wicked call

They take the figure of kings

but you never see them

For they hide behind the shadows

of discontent

There should be no fear

No worries for the JUST

 perfect lethal portion

for those Who drew innocent Blood 

Mantra

You are the blinded, rounded, and hunted

Remove your shroud get out the dark,

Tell us the truth——————————.Repeat…x9
