Holla Wanna Power Hour

Kushlani Kukula

Thursday 6AM-8AM

The Holla Wanna Power Hour is music for movement of all kinds, whether it's social justice or dance or diasporic communities, or something completely different. Holla Wanna is rooted in a Sinhalese Sri Lankan word for SHAKE, as in shake your body and shake stuff UP. Your host is Kushlani Kukula, an intersectional-feminist prison-abolitionist PDX-transplant South-Asian-American daughter and sister of immigrants to the U.S. Deep South. Whoever you are, Holla Wanna's music will move you.
