Musings by the Curious  Non-Conformist

With all that’s happening in the news and around us today, I thought it would be an opportune time to share a piece by a good friend of mine from SpokenWord501, Mr. Kyraan Gabourel. Of course, the written piece will be great, but nothing compares to watching Kyo D’Assassin pump his soul, passion and unequivocal vigour as he brings his pieces to life.

I share with you “Di Revolution Noh Wahn Be Stream Live”:
