Overtone Chanting



Overtone chanting (also known as overtone singing, Tuvan throat singing, harmonic singing, or khoomei) is a voice technique in which one vocalist sings two notes at once. This is done by reinforcing harmonics (either overtones or undertones), whereby the singer alters the resonances produced in the vocal tract. Many find overtone chanting to have a calming, grounding effect.
