Alyson Calagna

With a diverse and international upbringing from Louisiana to Dubai to Scotland and back, Alyson Calagna’s music is both undeniably eclectic and deeply spiritual. Having been surrounded by Middle Eastern music and inspired by her yoga practice, Calagna combines pulsing beats of house music, Middle Eastern soundscapes, Sanskrit chants and Rumi poetry in her release Omtronica: Music for the Seeker. Her calling to the booth came from the freedom and euphoria she felt while on the dance floor, and now she strives to create a place where “we are able to let go and dance with complete abandon”. There’s no question that her range and versatility, from sunny, jazzy uplifting grooves to deep, dark, progressive house will be showcased and praised on Saturday, July 2.
