The Garden is Open is a downtempo, eclectic, jazz show presented by DJ and radio producer Hodan Styrene. Traversing through spirituality and meditating the human experiences at the core of music, culture and society. Lifting vibrations one song at a time.
On today's show, Hodan is joined by He Valencia, aka Aloiso Wilmoth, Midwest techno artist and cultural theorist that explores the long legacy of black dance music alongside political and diasporic questions that has been active in the North American techno scene since 2008. Hodan will be interviewing Aloiso in the second half of the show exploring the social-political possibilities that can emerge from dance music & 'techno internationalism' followed by a guest mix by He Valencia.
