St. Patty's Day Vocal Jam

  • The Hive 205 NW Franklin Ave Bend United States (map)

Hey, so for those who read my description for the Valentine's Vocal Jam, my sentiment is similar for St. Patty's Day...love Irish culture, music, mysticism, don't care for the commercial / drunken vibe of this holiday. SO, it just so happened I wanted to try out a Vocal Jam on a Sunday to see how that works for y'all and, of course, it also happens to be St. Patty's Day! You may be like me, seeking more conscious events on holidays that can seem to have some mindless elements, so here you go! Come...sing...with...me.

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, *circlesinging, and sound healing, music-making with Shireen is both exciting and soul-nourishing. Shireen also performs original conscious world-soul-pop in her live looping 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.
