The Power and Origins of Throat Singing
My final paper revolved around the power and origins of throat singing. I go into a bit of the history within the introduction, and dive further into the various styles of Tuvan Throat Singing: Khoomei, Kargyraa, and Sygyt. Each of the styles are explained in detail in regards to physical anatomy of the throat, and goes into exactly how they are executed. After moving on from each of the primary chanting styles, I specifically talk about the benefits that throat singing provides like connecting to the roots which were sung before the human language, understanding polyphonic singing, vibrating the vagus nerve, and a couple of other interesting benefits.Then, I sum it all up and suggest throat singing as something to perhaps incorporate in daily routine/ritual, as I do every morning.
