RUHAN DU TOIT - SOUND OF SILENCE AND MORE

Ruhan du Toit, wat veral bekend is vir sy aangrypende vertolking van die gewilde


Simon & Garfunkel-treffer, The Sound of Silence, het beslis geen bekendstelling in


musiekkringe nodig nie. Sy unieke vieroktaafstem en natuurlike talent agter die kitaar


en verskeie ander musikale instrumente, het reeds vir hom baie deure oopgemaak en


vir hom ’n permanente plek in die harte van Suid-Afrikaanse en Internasionale


musiekliefhebbers verseker....


Die musikant, wat in Port-Elizabeth grootgeword het en tans in Pretoria woon, werk al sedert


1993 in die musiekbedryf en kon letterlik sing voordat hy behoorlik kon loop of praat. Op die


ouderdom van tien, reik hy sy eerste solo album, Die Hemel Is (1994), uit en dit was maar net die


begin van hierdie singende wonderkind se musiekreis!


In 2012 het hy aangesluit by die bekroonde musiekgroep, Touch of Class, saam met wie hy reeds


dertien suksesvolle albums uitgebring het. The Sound of Silence se musiekvideo, wat hy ook as


deel van dié duo uitgebring het, het groot sukses aanlyn bereik.


Vanjaar is hy reeds ses-en-twintig-jaar in die bedryf en om hierdie mylpaal in sy loopbaan te vier,


gaan hy nou ook sy veelsydigheid as solo-kunstenaar ten toon stel. Ruhan het besluit dat dit tyd is


vir iets nuut en opwindend en daarom gaan hy nou fokus op solo-vertonings, hy is dankbaar vir


alles wat hy by Deon geleer het deur die jare en hy sal die kennis en lewenslesse toepas in sy solo


loopbaan.


Die nuwe vertonings gaan wissel tussen massiewe musikale


verwerkings en naakte eenvoud, waar net sy stem en kitaarspel ten toongestel gaan word. Dit


gaan ook vir hom ’n geleentheid bied om oorspronklike werke met aanhangers te deel.”


Ruhan werk ook die afgelope drie jaar nou saam met Coleske Artists en gaan vanjaar te sien wees


by die land se grootste musiekkonserte, Afrikaans Is Groot en Classics is Groot. Sy solo album sal


binnekort landswyd beskikbaar wees maar, hy deel solank sy debuut enkelsnit ‘As Jy Dink Jy weet’


met ons waaroor hy baie opgewonde is. ‘As Jy Dink Jy Weet’ speel reeds op verskeie radiostasies


insluitend Jacaranda FM en Bok Radio.

Ruhan du Toit, best-known for his jaw dropping rendition of the popular Simon & Garfunkel hit, The Sound of Silence, definitely needs no introduction in music circles. His unique four octave vocal range and natural talent behind the guitar and various other musical instruments, have not only opened doors for him in the past, but have also cemented his place in the hearts and ears of South African and International music lovers.nnThe musician who grew up in Port-Elizabeth and now lives in Pretoria, has been working in the entertainment industry since 1993 and was able to sing before he could walk or talk. He released his first solo album, Die Hemel Is (1994), at the age of ten and that was only the beginning of this giftedmusician’s musical journey.nnSince then, he has performed about 150 shows per year, starred in various musicals and plays and released three solo albums, Mensekind (1995), I believe (1997) and Sal ek jou kom haal (2008), and two duet albums, Sound of Silence (2000) and Langpad (2006), with his brother, Jeanré. Ruhan and Jeanré also made the top 20 of Zing in 2004.nIn 2012, he became the lead singer of the acclaimed musical duo, Touch of Class, in 2012 and since then they have released thirteen successful albums.nThe music video of his rendition of The Sound of Silence, for which he has received numerous standing ovations, achieved great success online. Since its release in June 2016, it has been viewed by more than five million people on YouTube.nTo celebrate twenty-six years in the music industry, he has decided to resume his solo concerts in 2019. Although he will still be performing with Touch of Class, the artist found that it was time for a new and exciting chapter in his career. “It is very nice to share the stage with a group member, but it also limits how much you can give of yourself without seeming selfish. Ruhan has always had the ability to read and please any crowd with over a variety of 500 songs. His shows will have something for everyone, ranging from massive musical productions to vulnerable solo acoustic sessions. He will also have the opportunity to share some original songs with his audience.”nnA solo album is planned for October 2019 and he is very excited about the opportunity to show fans what he can do on his own. Ruhan has also been working very closely with Coleske Artists for the past three years and can be expected on stage at two of South Africa’s most prestigious music events, Afrikaans is Groot and Classics is Groot.
