Got any cool throat singing videos? Post them here.


Wikipedia: Overtone singing


The partials of a sound wave made by the human voice can be selectively amplified by changing the shape of the resonant cavities of the mouth, larynx and pharynx. This resonant tuning allows the singer to create more than one pitch at the same time.

Not sure why no one's commented on this, I think it's interesting.

They sound a little annoying so I probably wouldn't buy a cd of this kind of thing
But it's still very interesting that they can make these unique throat sounds.

i love tuvan singing. i have quite a collection of mp3s by various tuvan artists. my favourite track has to be tuvan industrial - kuul & alperin (if you don't include the bit on the klf album chill out that is).

sorry i haven't got any vids of either for you though here is a strange tuvan version of 'love will tear us apart' by joy division youtube.com...

I did a function where I got to see throat singers do their thing and I have to say I was pretty amazed at its origins and the skills some of these people have.
It was an Inuit function and I was honoured to be invited.
Here is a song that was performed at the function but is not from the function.

Susan Aglukark...a genuinely sweet lady who hasn't lost her perspective.


It was quite a learning experience to be introduced to their culture and a memory I will always remember.

Personally...I prefer metal!!

This is amazing, I love it. So much varieties in tones and music in one song.

That last track is amazing, it sent me into a half trance immediately, eyes wide open but my vision faded almost completely. The two Inuit ladies are awesome too, at times they were 'out Tom Waits-ing' Tom waits! A friend has some good recordings of mongolian throat singing, must find out where he got them. Also, I remember reading a while ago of a chap diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, he allegedly cured himself by learning throat singing, and practicing it several hours a day. Mabye works like a cat purring, thought by some to be a healing mechanism.
Great stuff

I guess this would fit in here. Tanya Tagaq & Mike Patton - Fire - Ikuma



Sorry if it's not traditional enough of a performance for you, but I like my music in a language I can understand...

Mike Patton is more of an experimental artist (experimenting, in this case, with throat singing...i suppose) and Tanya Tagaq is a "non-traditional" Inuit throat singer. I admit that my knowledge of this art form is very limited. But from what I've heard from this Tagaq lady is pretty interesting...when she has musical accompaniment:




But her a cappella kinda sounds... pornographic(¿?) interesting, nonetheless




...and one more with accompaniment that kinda border(crosses)s on the...voice over for an erotic film category, as well. ENJOY




I will thank the OP for introducing me to a music style that I was completely unfamiliar with. Not sure if it's my kind of thing, but I'll check out more of it.

Nice contribution.


She was a bit pornographic at her acapella yes lol, some of the sounds she produces can go well I think with music such as Enya or Sigur Ros... Kind of euphoric type of music.

Here's another one, fast paced this time. Feels like going with a horde of Mongols in the desert.
