REVAMPING TUVAN THROAT SINGING INTO A UNIQUELY MODERN-DAY MUSICAL EXPERIENCE
Tuvan throat singing
There are five main styles of Tuvan throat singing, and they all imitate different sounds of nature. For example, khöömei echoes the wind and domesticated animal sounds; sygyt refers to the sound of birds; ezeŋgileer reflects on the sound of stirrups during a horse's run; boraŋnadyr is the murmuring or gurgling sound of the river; and kargyraa is the sound of wild animals such bears and camels, as well as the mountains.
DEMONSTRATION OF KHÖÖMEI STYLES
The uniqueness of these trance-like intonations lies in the fact that the performer manipulates their throat in order to extract two or three notes at the same time, thus forming a kind of polyphony.
