Shireen Amini is an independent artist and a self-described queer, Puerto Rican-Iranian-American, Earth-loving musician based in Portland, Oregon, most known for the last 8 years for fronting the successful Latin dance rock band ¡Chiringa! She is releasing a solo album called "Break Myself Free," an album that came with a strong vision for healing and empowerment before the pandemic, was crowdfunded through the pandemic, recorded in Boston, MA in October 2020, and will now be released as we emerge on the other side.

"Break Myself Free" (the album) is a proud proclamation of Shireen's queer identity and an invitation into deeper connection with the Earth. It is filled with energizing grooves, anthemic choruses, and soulful stories of change. The predominant genres represented are rock, pop, and soul with infusions of Latin and hip hop. The album was primarily produced by Mike Davidson at Plaid Dog Recording, a studio in Boston fully-powered by crowdfunding.

Songleading at Song Village 2022

Santa Cruz, California

SOLD OUT! I will be among an incredible group of songleaders facilitating community singing at this 4-day gathering.

ABOUT SONG VILLAGE... Song Village is held in a beautiful redwood forest in the Santa Cruz mountains. We have three or four song circles each morning afternoon and evening. The circles are lead by guest song leaders or by the participants themselves. Each circle has a theme or genre, like the ones listed below. You choose the circles that interest you the most. Learn and sing new songs, or teach the group some songs you love.

Our gatherings also include fun and rich community building events, including dance, improv theater, heart share circles and delicious meals. Our gatherings are consciously facilitated to help everyone feel included and connected.
