The World of Overtone Singing

February 15th, 2017

 

Overtone/throat singing is a special technique of manipulating the vocal tract that has arisen independently throughout the world. Master khoomei (Tuvan throat singing) performer Narisu greeted visitors, answered questions about Mongolian music, and demonstrated khoomei. Students from the WFU course “Introduction to the Music of World Cultures” also presented a mini-exhibit of their research on several traditions of overtone singing.
