This workshop gives you an opportunity to learn Mongolian Khoomi Ovetone singing - Khoomi 1 The Source.

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 the central Asian plateau, particularly the Altai and Sayan mountain regions of Mongolia and Tuva.

The nomads of these parts have discovered how to sing melodies that arise from the universal harmonic overtone series.

Listen to your own overtones as you discover the unknown depths and heights of your own voice.

For bookings phone: 07837 186370 or email Kanti

The workshop is open to anyone who wishes to explore the harmonic nature of their voice.
