Have you heard this song about the Transition movement? if you haven't, come on out and hear it! Jarmo Jalava’s new single, Transition Town is a rocking 21st century environmental anthem that travels from apathy to awareness, and soars to inspired activism and hope. It's a cross of Aztec rythms, funk, rock and tango. (Listen on YouTube: http://bit.ly/qjlEKx)
