Voice

This isn't everybody's cup of tea, but if you have the ear for it, you can hear some fascinating under- and overtones in the voices of the monks as they chant.

Then listen to one guy from Tuva intone three or four notes at the same time, in traditional throat-singing ...

Oh Man! I love Tuvan throat singing, it's so fascinating. One of these days, I'm going to figure it out!

I can get a bit of the throat-singing when I do an om, but only a little. Just enough to really appreciate what a major kind of control it takes to do what the Tuva singer in the clip does.
