Throat singing, or “two-voice solo”, the primary owners of which are the peoples of the Sayan-Altai region, Bashkiria and Tibet, awakens a lot of mixed emotions in a person. At the same time, I want to be sad and rejoice, think and meditate. The uniqueness of this type of art is the specific laryngeal singing, in which the performer clearly heard two musical voices. One reaches out with a bourdon, the other (melody) makes sound amplitudes.
A LOOK AT THE ORIGINS Of ancient masters-performers, creativity has always been inspired by nature. The ability not only to imitate her, but also to penetrate into the essence was appreciated. There is a legend that says that in very old times, throat singing was common among women, and not among men. Centuries later, everything turned upside down, and today such singing has become purely masculine. There are two versions regarding its occurrence. The first insists that the Dalma religion is at the core. Only here the Mongolian, Tuvinian and Tibetan lamas sang harmonious polyphony in parts with a guttural sound, that is, they did not split their voice! The second, most believable, proves that throat singing was born in the form of lyrics, lyrical and love in content.
“TWO-VOICE SOLO” STYLES Five types of this gift of nature are distinguished by sound qualities. Kargıraa imitates wheezing or wheezing sounds. Hoomei acoustically represents heavy, buzzing sounds of extremely low frequencies. Sybyt, most likely, came from the verb “whistle” and means lamentation, crying. Borbannadyr (from “borbannat” – to roll something round) has rhythmic forms. But the name “Esengileer” is quite interesting. While riding a horse, the bonnet stuck to the saddle and the bridle touch the stirrups. A special rhythmic sound is produced, for the reproduction of which the rider must occupy a certain position in the saddle and ride amble. The fifth element of style imitates these sounds.
