Throat singing, overtone singing, harmonic singing, khöömei - increasing numbers of Western people are finding themselves drawn to these ethereal and intriguing sounds that have travelled into Europe and America primarily from Mongolia and Tuva in the former Soviet Union.
Most recently popularised in the West by the touring musicians Huun Huur Tu, Yat Kha, and Sainkho Namatchlyak this fascinating style of singing allows the simultaneous production of two or more notes by the same singer. This feat is accomplished by deliberate enhancement of the natural harmonics found in our voices. Overtone singing can be safely learnt by men and women of all ages and a few simple exercises will quickly unlock the wonderful healing and meditational qualities of these unique sounds.

A special vocal technique that originates in Central Asia (mongolia & Tuva) where it is known as Khoomei. By using careful control of the vocal apparatus it becomes possible for one person to sing more than two notes simultaneously. These techniques can be learnt by many people and are wonderful to listen to but even better to use personally.
