Shireen Amini Music Medicine presents...

Vocal Jam ~ Improvised Song Circle with Groove and Soul

Groove medicine is a real thing. When we express soulfully through our voices and rhythm, we generate feelings of connection and freedom that feed our life force like no other.
Vocal Jam is a playful blend of sound healing, circlesinging*, drum circle facilitation, and spontaneous songwriting in which all you gotta do is follow my lead. You don’t need experience or even much confidence. That will come with time. All you need is a stir, a call, and a little courage. In this fun and safe space, awaken your own inner movements and free up some wild joy.
Now let’s get down, people.

$5-10 sliding scale

About the facilitator…
Shireen Amini is a singer-songwriter / musician based in Bend, Oregon whose performance career has interwoven
with her passion for healing and indigenous wisdom through the development of “music medicine” offerings. With
background in world music, drum circle facilitation, and sound healing, community music-making with Shireen is both
exciting and soul-nourishing. Shireen also performs original conscious soul pop in her one-woman show and is the
lead singer of Latin dance rock band, ¡Chiringa!

*Circlesinging is an improvised, often wordless, form of singing in a circle developed by Bobby McFerrin in which a song leader
creates on-the-spot interlocking melodies and harmonies. Shireen trained with McFerrin’s colleague David Worm during her
certification in Sound, Voice, and Music Healing at CIIS in San Francisco.
