Ali Dineen is an artist, performer, musician, and composer from Jackson Heights, Queens. She performs her original music and songs from the American folk tradition regularly in New York City and across the so-called United States. Ali's original music draws upon multiple genres/traditions ranging from 1920s American jazz to Eastern European polyphony. Her lyrics are poetic and deeply personal, and highlight the intersections between personal experience, larger histories, and systems of power. Ali teaches adult voice and vocal harmony classes at the Jalopy Theater and School of Music, and assistant directs the Jalopy Chorus with Eva Salina. She also works with various other projects including The Everything Is Fine Theater Company, the Bread and Puppet Theater, and a folk-duo collaboration with Feral Foster. She's currently recording a new EP.
