Inuit Throat Singing

Environmental & Science Education
Edward Hessler

This short film (3 m) features two Inuit women throat singing. In this Inuit tradition, the duo stand face-to-face in a musical competition. Here is information on throat singing in three cultures.

There is more explanation below the film.  The setting is magnificent and the singing is "mesmerizing."

At the bottom there is a link to Canada-based First Nations film initiative Wapikoni Mobile. Take a look.
