Overtone Singing in Foreign Languages

Try entering “overtone singing” in other languages into a search engine. I have compiled over 50 translations. You will find videos and other treasures you would never have been able to find otherwise.

New creative developments of overtone singing are often not easy to find if you only search with the usual terms: Throat singing, overtone singing, khoomii, etc. According to Google, “throat singing” is the most searched term in this context, but treasures from France or Russia may be lost.

Do you know another translation? Then please put it in the comment below.
