YOU CAN SING MULTIPLE NOTES SIMULTANEOUSLY!

Yes, it is possible to sing two or more notes at the same time. Just like playing a chord on the piano! I never thought it was possible until I came across Tuva Throat Singing. It is also called Khoomei.

THE HISTORY

Throat singing is an indigenous oral tradition that has been taught from one generation to the next. There is no record of how it began. Also called katajjaq, it is a traditional musical performance. The ancient Inuit women participated in throat singing to entertain one another. The contest was to see which singer could last the longest. There are many types of throat singing. Khoomei is the type with diffused harmonics created by a fundamental drone.

SINGING MULTIPLE NOTES

Khoomei is a practice of throat singing by the Turkic indigenous people of Siberia, Mongolia and China. Tuva Throat Singers can produce two or more notes at the same time through a specialized singing technique. They are taking advantage of the throat’s resonance characteristics and producing multiple sounds.

These singers create this sound by precise movements of the lips, tongue, larynx, soft palate and jaw. The singers use a type of circular breathing. This style of breathing allows them to sustain more than one note at the same time. Only one voice is used to produce these unique harmonies! These unique singers are trained from childhood.

Listen to Lalah Hathaway singing “Something“ at 6:11 into the song you can hear her singing multiple notes at the same time! It’s unbelievable! Just cut and past this URL:
