Oddly Mesmerizing

Because I'm still ridiculously weak and somewhat woozy from the virus, I've been completely mesmerized for the last half hour by Kongar-ol Ondar, who is a throat singer. Here's a description:
Overtone singing (also known as Throat singing) is a fascinating method of singing where the singer is able to manipulate the harmonic resonance created from the air traveling from the lungs past the vocal cords to produce a melody. Talented overtone singers have the ability to produce from two to four different notes at the same time.

See him on David Letterman here.
