What's Hot
Guess this comes under technique although not sure if its musical or not but then its Jazz

  • My wife is a singing coach and has met quite a few people who can do this.  I find it quite amazing.

    I have enough trouble singing one note at the same time!

  • Have a listen to the National Bulgarian women's choir or pretty much any Bulgarian folk music. The specialise in dual tone singing. Some sounds awful, some incredible.

    Throat singing is something I worked on quite a bit in the 1990's.

    It isn't REALLY dual tone singing, but rather you accent overtones that exist in the harmonic series of the fundamental tone.
    Two notes would be two fundamentals with all their attendant overtones.

    I can do a pretty decent Kargyraa style (low guttural grumbling with a single undertone at half the frequency of the higher tone) but the more advanced styles such as Khoomei and Sygyt completely eluded me.

    Check out Huun Huur Tu if you want to see some absolutely masterful throat singing.

  • I had assumed it was going to be some creative use of a harmony generator, but it looks like the real thing

    I reckon you should work your Kargyraa style into everyday life, give tourists directions, order a beer in a bar

    This would make my trips to the pub a lot more interesting.

    Bobbi McFerrin does it beautifully on this track… worth watching to the end, it's brilliant.



    On a similar note, have a listen to 'Don't worry, be happy', a song you'll likely know, but you might not have noticed it's all his voice :-)

    My singer did it during our recording session yesterday, I was pretty impressed.

    I mean, I'd have been more impressed if either of the notes he picked were in tune, but you can't have everything I guess.
