Bloodless Revolution, 'opening the eyes of the world through music'


 
By tawanda ngena
Someone once said that "where words fail, music speaks!", such is the power of this art form and medium that it has captured the hearts and minds of human beings the world over for countless millennia.
For many an artist, music goes beyond the entertainment value!
A like-minded group of musicians from around the globe (Zimbabwe involved) came together under the umbrella term, The Bloodless Revolution, a project aimed at opening the eyes of the world (as it were) through music.           
"The Bloodless Revolution Project is a 'wake up call' for our people, irrespective of where you are on the globe.                                                                       
"Countries representing this project include, Switzerland, Uruguay, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Malawi, Nigeria, Ghana, Jamaica, UK and the USA, among others", said the Project Manager for Bloodless Revolution, who is also a singer/songwriter, Andrew Robinson.                                                                          

Artists from the aforementioned nations contributed their time, energy and voices to the inaugural Bloodless Revolution project CD.
"The Original idea started 13 Years ago but the first official Bloodless Revolution album was released in March 2016 with the help of 18 artistes from all over the world and co-produced by " Izrah " and myself.                                                                    
"The aim of the project is to "Fight" Physiologically, Strategically and Intelligently in achieving our goals", he said.
                                                           
The 19 track album contains songs from artists such as Picoshanty, Black Dillinger, Inity, Empress Tashai and Zimbabwe's own Mega Jani, just to mention a few.

The Zimbabwean representative in the project echoed the same sentiments as those shared by the founder, Andrew Robinson and also spoke glowingly on what it meant for him to be part of such a unique initiative.
"The project is about opening the eyes of the world using likeminded people, collectively and in our mission, it is akeen to 'Lions Trodding with Lions.                                                                      


"As an ambassador of my own people wherever I am on the globe, I intend to keep spreading the Word and doing live appearances whenever the project calls upon me to do so. It is always a good thing to fly your country's flag and represent it on various platforms like we previously did during the '10 Cities Concert' which was held in kenya 2016. I always feel honoured to showcase zimbabwean talent", said Jani.

It is that same honour that he felt upon being invited onto the project by Andrew Robinson, whom he said had been impressed particularly by Mega Jani's excellent lyrical content.
" It is very important for me as an artist to be involved in a project like the "Bloodless Revolution and I am committed to its cause because it is one that I believe in and fully endorse", said the reggae artist.   

Mega Jani describes himself as being,
"A Zimbabwean international reggae/dancehall artist who has not only made his name in africa but on a global scale."
Having done, as he did, quite a number of internationally recognized collaborations with established Jamaican reggae artists, from the likes of Kiprich and Danny English, just to mention a few, who can dispute that?
A determined individual by nature, Mega Jani said that he had set his eyes on making a global impact.

According to the musician, hardcore reggae fans, local and global can expect a brand new album that he promised was due this April.
Besides that, the musician said he is currently working on ministerial project for Dr. Walter Muzembi, the country's Minister of tourism.                       

Armed with tracks such as 'Jehovah', 'Get Me Yard' featuring Kiprich, 'Baby Tonight' with Nuchie, 'African Princess' featuring Savana and a whole lot more in his arsenal, Jani is sure to bring the house down when The Bloodless Revolution tour comes to our shoresshores in the not-so-distant future.
