Since then, I have seen this young man in concert with Kalonji and let me say that no cd can do him true justice, he can sing out of this world.
This album is one I would classify as a gem, meaning, it is pretty hard to find, I ordered directly from Xterminator but it is worth the effort. There are 13 tracks, only one that I don't really like Woman A You and 12 very beautiful songs that you can just enjoy from a purely musical level, or you can dig into the lyrics for complete understanding and see exactly where this yute is coming from. One of the more interesting things that I notice in this album is that Turbulence, a devout rastafari, rarely directly writes verses where he draws on Selassie I by name, instead he chooses to use indirect mentions, where he'll say "The Lion" or "His Majesty", I find that very interesting, because, including Beenie Man, there aren't many rastafarian artists that write and don't use the word "Selassie I".
There are several tracks that I really like here, the opener Living in Sufferation is fantastic, and a great example of how Turbulence varies back and forth between singing and djaying.
Where are Your Wings? If forced to pick a favorite I'd probably say Living in Sufferation. Overall I say definitely get this one, its an absolutely beautiful project, and a beautiful beginning from one of reggae's most promising future stars. One person found this helpful.

Over one hundred youth and elected officials, union and community leaders marched from Elm and Kensington streets where Tyrell Trimble was shot to death in July, , to the Peoples Center to hear Gauthier's story.
Thanking the youth for marching and accepting the petitions for jobs they presented to her, Harp exclaimed, "If the demand is not placed there will be no action. Chanting "Jobs for Youth - Jobs for All," the marchers filed into the Peoples Center to the sounds of drumming by Brian Jarawa Gray and joined the crowd already assembled.
As the room filled to capacity, people gathered outside the front and back doors, straining to hear the program.
Prize winners of the high school arts and writing competition presented their poems, essays and artwork on the theme, "If you were mayor of New Haven how would you work with young people to plan for the future of the city?
As a high school student, what would you say to Mayor Toni Harp? Harp, the city's first woman and second African American mayor, promised to place the book with all the submissions into the New Haven Public Library "for posterity. Before presenting his life story, Gauthier received additional citations from Rep. Gary Holder-Winfield , elected two days later to fill the state senate seat vacated by Harp; Ald.
The room was silent as Gauthier took the podium after giving his cousin in the audience a hug. He described racist incidents in segregationist Louisiana, in the military in the Dominican Republic, and in New Haven that had shaped his life. His mother's teaching and example led him to decide to turn his anger into organizing to bring about change, he said.
He described his years working at the Winchester sporting arms factory where he was a leader of a six- month strike in and then elected president of the International Association of Machinists, Victory Lodge He also spoke of his earlier participation in the union organizing drive at Yale New Haven Hospital, acknowledging his co-workers from those experiences in the audience. Don't let other people who know us define us. Learn your family history. Learn the real history of our nation.
You cannot change anything unless your first find out how it works and what role you can play to make this democracy in these United States work for all people. Ben McManus , chair of the People's World committee that planned the event, thankedd Gauthier and recalled his own first introduction to the Communist Party newspaper as a child in Newark, New Jersey. Before enjoying a home made meal, those present reached into their wallets to make a contribution to the fund drive.
Messages from labor and community leaders, participation by young people, and adoption of a Connecticut Economic Bill of Rights highlighted the lively and powerful convention of the Connecticut district of the Communist Party on May Day weekend. Jennifer Graham and Jackie Marks , high school students representing New Elm City Dream on the mayor's planning committee to rebuild the Q House youth center, got loud applause when they explained, "We wanted to bring the violence down.
We marched and campaigned for the Q House. The multi-racial and multi-generational gathering took stock of the last four years and discussed how to win living wage jobs and other gains to improve the lives of working people, unemployed and youth. It's a big responsibility. She said Connecticut has bucked national trends in elections because of labor's grassroots organizing on issues and fielding union members as candidates.
This has resulted in the ability to expand the right of workers to organize, take major steps towards protecting the rights and safety of immigrants, and increased protections on the job. It has also made the state a target of extreme right-wing organizations that are spending huge sums to try and recapture the governor's seat and Congress in November's elections.
Delegates old and new embraced a culture of organizing has led to steady growth of the Communist Party and YCL. After hearing presentations from the North Main club in Hartford which is known for holding the civilian review board accountable for police conduct, and the Newhall club in New Haven which is organizing door-to-door on the issue of jobs, the convention broke down into small groups to discuss how the work of their clubs makes a difference in their communities and why the Communist Party is needed to give people a voice and a vision.
Placing the struggles in a bigger perspective, he warned of the dangers of extreme right-wing voter suppression and big spending to try and gain control of Congress and state offices in The convention adopted a Connecticut Economic Bill of Rights that proclaims a living wage job with the right to a union, housing, health care, education and a peaceful, sustainable environment are basic human rights.
While stating "fully ending inequality needs socialism," the document details immediate local and national demands to tax the rich and move money from military spending to infrastructure repair and people's needs. The convention also adopted a resolution encouraging voter education and participation in voter registration and voter turnout efforts for November's election. A delegation of 25 was elected to represent the state at the 30th national convention in Chicago next month.
They march, they chair meetings and recruit new youth to join them. They are making a qualitative difference in the lives of youth in Connecticut and inspiring the whole movement. Following the convention, a People's World May Day tribute to Pete Seeger and Amiri Baraka was held upstairs in the sanctuary of the First and Summerfield Methodist Church, site of countless union rallies and mobilizations.
According to club chair Tom Connolly , Hartford Service Workers Club , was formed four years ago with a few comrades. Our constituency is workers in service industries in the Hartford area. We are primarily organizers, members and leaders of SEIU affiliated unions.
Our club also assists the neighborhood clubs in the area, for example by providing transportation to city or state People's World and Communist Party events. The club has recruited several leaders and retirees and we have made progress in establishing a party presence with union activists.
Our goal is to expand our ranks through our contacts with activists and the rank and file.Listen to music from Turbulence like Notorious (Original 7" Mix), Notorious & more.
