Cantar com a garganta

An ethnomusicologist gives a throat-singing lesson
For those who think the human voice can produce only one note at a time, the resonant harmonies of throat-singing are surprising. In throat-singing, a singer can produce two or more notes simultaneously through a specialized vocalization technique taking advantage of the throat’s resonance characteristics. Singers use a form of circular breathing which allows them to sustain multiple notes for long periods of time. Young Tuvan singers are trained from childhood through a sort of apprentice system to use the folds of the throat as reverberation chambers. Mark van Tongeren, an ethnomusicologist specializing in khöömei throat-singing, teaches the technique. Learn more about throat-singing in different cultures here.

Vejam o vídeo porque é uma técnica muito interessante.

P.S. Peço desculpa pela não tradução mas não estou muito para aí virada!
