We're an inclusive English & Arabic radio station that mainly speaks to the SWANA (South West Asian & North African, ya3ny 3arab) diaspora. We talk about all topics with nothing off-limits. Our mandate is accepting, tolerant, and welcoming to all SWANA diaspora members of all ages, races, gender expressions, sexual orientations, and religions or lack thereof.
Falafel Frequencies is an Arabx radio for the SWANA diaspora - A sonic journey that transcends borders and cultural nuances. An inclusive radio platform that amplifies voices from the SWANA (South West Asian and North African) diaspora and reflects its rich tapestry of arts, cultures, and political landscapes.
Falafel Frequencies is the metamorphosis of Calgary Arabia Radio. Calgary Arabia was born in 2015 as a 2-hour weekly show on Red FM 106.7 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Over our 7 years of broadcast, Calgary Arabia evolved into a powerhouse of independent and inclusive broadcasting.
With Falafel Frequencies, we aim to not only be a radio station; we want to create a community, belonging, free expression, a voice for the SWANA diaspora, and a deeply valid hybrid identity!
