Khöömii is an amazing style of overtone/harmonic singing where one person sings two or more distinct pitches at the same time. It originates among the nomads of Central Asia, particularly the mountain regions of Mongolia and Tuva. Listen to your own overtones as you discover the unknown depths and heights of your voice through these enchanting sounds. Beginners welcome.
With Michael Ormiston & Candida Valentino.

Michael and Candida are multi-instrumentalist specializing in Mongolian khöömii (Overtone) singing and have travelled to Mongolia many times. They have principally studied with Tserendaava, a master teacher from the Chandman' district, Khovd Province, west Mongolia. Tserendaava & khöömii master Gereltsogt have blessed Michael and Candida to teach the basics of khöömii. [artist website]
