All ages welcome, This is a no-alcohol event

We invite you to this Queer and POC-led community singing gathering to experience the power of song as medicine, as a tool for liberation, and to simply fill your well of joy and connection. We believe singing is a birthright and welcome all levels of experience. Our incredible group of songleaders will teach songs on-the-spot, usually through call and echo, that are sourced from the community singing movement or have come through the songleaders themselves.

We will sing some songs in Spanish! ¡Vamos a cantar algunas canciones en español!

This will be a special night of music as two talented musicians reunite for an evening of inspired music. Shireen Amini and Tyler Spencer have a friendship and musical connection that goes back many years. They've recorded and performed together in the past combining percussion and didgeridoo to create a fantastic musical combination that is high energy and from the soul. They will be playing solo sets of their own music, and collaborating together for an evening of music inspired by multiple genres including: latin, hiphop, rock, folk, didgeridoo, edm and dance music. This is going to be an event not to miss!

Tyler Spencer is a didjeridu player and producer with over 20 years experience performing, teaching and making didjeridu. He has performed internationally, and has collaborated with a variety of musical and performing acts. His music has also been showcased on movie and television work, most notably the HBO series “Dexter”. His solo performances incorporate live didjeridu with self produced beats and have been described as rhythmic, otherworldly and capable of transforming a captivated crowd into a dance party..

Bar service with local micro brews, cider and kombucha on tap. We also have a fine selection of wine, prosecco, hard seltzers, light beers and non-alcoholic options too. Basic menu in house with full menu provided by Mollies Cafe. Our outdoor social area and the fire pit will be set up too.

Primaltones Venue is located in beautiful Newport, Oregon in Aquarium Village. Hotels are within walking distance of the venue and plenty of bay front sights and restaurant options nearby as well.

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.

7pm - DJ Jah Yogi spinning an all-Latin playlist 8pm - Live music by Chiringa All Ages Silver Moon Brewing, Indoor Stage

Chiringa is a Puerto Rican-fronted band and acknowledges that this holiday, while significant to the town of Puebla, is not a significant holiday celebrated in all of Mexico. The version we know in the US is a result of the commercialization of this holiday, primarily set forth by beer and liquor companies. It was, however, significant to Mexican-Americans as a way to lift up their culture amidst oppression. We recognize that we, as a band, are benefiting from this Americanized tradition and wish to move the awareness and treatment of this holiday toward actual care and uplift of Mexican-Americans and the Latinx community at large.

A portion of proceeds will benefit Vámonos Outside, a local organization whose mission is to connect, engage & inspire our Latinx families & community into the outdoors for all of Central Oregon.

In addition to a percentage being donated by the band and event booker, Silver Moon will donate $1 of every pint sold of their Mexican-style lager, called Chela, and $1 each sold of their signature Chiringa cocktail!

All this said, we DO NOT support offensive gestures on this holiday that make a mockery of Mexican culture. In other words, please leave your sombreros at home.

But PLEASE come to dance, learn, celebrate with us! And spread the word! This will be Chiringa’s first show in a year and we are excited to bring the Latin fire back to town. Gather ‘round, people!

The Grief to Action Camp is a semi-mobile camp where African Heritage and other identified PotGM (People of the Global Majority) can come shelter in place and grieve with support. ​ Grief is an integral part of the human experience, and all of humanity deserves a place for their grief and rage. We are starting with the most marginalized.

After our strong emotions are released, folks can notice the wisdom that comes out of grief and out of rage, especially while being held and supported by African Heritage people and other allies.

Healing ourselves is healing the world.
