Vocal Jam

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

***Note: This will be a filmed event. I would LOVE for as many to attend as can so this footage can represent our wonderfully full community of singers! Video will be utilized to promote Vocal Jam on my website and FB page as I currently do not have any. I respect that for many, your singing expression is vulnerable and I encourage you to consider this an empowering experience that you might find fun and exciting to be part of rather than scary. My intention will be to maintain sacredness in our space and to let the camera (on a tripod) be a just fly on the wall that captures some of our magic. If you attend, I will assume your consent as it will be tricky to 'leave people out' of camera angles. Thank you!

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.
