ARA City & Radio ARA is proud to announce the launch of new community shows, as a celebration of Luxembourg’s Festival des Migrations 2021. The shows start the first week of March airing from 1pm to 2pm Monday to Friday; listeners can expect to hear Farsi, Tigrinya, Albanian, Portuguese as well as Greek & English on the airwaves.
The need and value of the community shows became evident during the pandemic when Radio ARA hosted the Covid-19 News Project to ensure that minority communities were informed about what was going on in Luxembourg. Five new community shows are planned and based on the concept of the Arabic Salam Show, that has been a weekly feature on the Radio ARA network since 2016, and is also supported by the foundation Oeuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte.
-The Habesha show in Tigrinya will reach out to one of the newest in Luxembourg, the Eritrean community; providing important information around the topics of education, employment, housing and nationality.
-The Farsi Show has a similar concept, but will also be of interest to the larger Farsi speaking community that consists of old and new Luxembourg residents.
-The Shqip dLux show is a Albanian youth show, and will compliment an Albanian show already on the ARA network.
–AQUI LUXEMBURGO! (Here’s Luxembourg!) is a show in Portuguese that will offer a summary of relevant news and information and aims to support and promote Portuguese speaking singers and musicians living and working in Luxembourg .
#ItsallGreektoMe is a fresh young show in English, hosted by Evangalos and Marina, two young Greek’s in Luxembourg. The show will focus on Greek interests in Luxembourg, as well as Greek music and culture from their homeland.
Aqui’ Entre nos is born out of the need to unite the Latino community in one place, connect with our music, culture and of course our activities in Luxembourg, Aqui entre nos is to spend a different time with Valentina Claverie every Friday between 1-2pm on AraCityRadio .
