About ¡Chiringa!

¡Chiringa!

In early 2012, Bend-based singer-songwriter Shireen Amini was asked to put together an all-Latin band for a Cinco de Mayo festival in Central Oregon. She was known mostly for her American soul-based original music but often included a few songs in Spanish her set. Little did she know that this one-time project would end up becoming a full-on gigging band. ¡Chiringa! splashed onto the scene with its fresh, rockified Latin grooves coupled with passionate vocals. Both the seasoned dancer as well as the regular booty shaker found deep gratification at a ¡Chiringa! show, where everyone was invited to move in their own sexy way to these tropical rhythms.

Chiringa, (pronounced Chee-reen-gah), means "kite" in Spanish, or Puerto Rican-style Spanish to be more precise. Shireen being of both Puerto Rican and Iranian descent was nicknamed "Chiringa" by Puerto Rican family members who had a hard time pronouncing the "sh" sound in her Iranian name. ¡Chiringa!, the band, brings forth this rich musical heritage via the songs Shireen grew up loving, her musical training in Afro-Latin styles, and the diverse musical backgrounds of her 3 affectionately-regarded "gringo" band members, who happen to also have incredible flavor and spice. The band's repertoire covers a wide range of pop stars and legends in the Latin music world like Santana, Celia Cruz, Selena, Juanes, Shakira, Maná, Ozomatli, and Buena Vista Social Club. It also spans an incredibly wide variety of Latin genres including salsa, cumbia, cha cha cha, bachata, samba, merengue, Latin rock and more. The band features Shireen Amini on guitar and lead vocals, Johnny Riordan on congas and timbales, Tom Freedman on bass and trumpet, and Matthew Williams on drum kit. Everyone gets down on percussion. ¡Chiringa! always invites a big dance party and audience participation, pulling everyone into the music using their voices and bodies and making it anywhere from a slow and sexy to a wildly ecstatic display on the dance floor.

After almost 5 years together, ¡Chiringa! is now bringing forth Latin funk-rock infused original music with their first album slated to be release the Summer of 2017. They are so excited to share this next level of their musical evolution with the community that has come to support and love them so! ¡Chiringa! invites you, people of all different backgrounds, to experience the joy of this music and just get down and celebrate life together like one big family.
