Honoured by the UNESCO, Khöömii is an amazing style of overtone or 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 were initially inspired by the imitation of their intimate connections to their natural surroundings: mountains, streams, animals, lakes and the harsh winds of the steppe, both physically and within their belief systems. 

This workshop enables you to listen to your own overtones, discovering unknown depths and heights of your voice through these enchanting sounds. So if you're curious to explore your vocal harmonics this way, you don't wanna miss this event.
