What is Overtone Singing (also known as Vocal Harmonics or Throat Singing)?

Many colors

The ancient technique of overtone singing allows the simultaneous production of two or more notes by the same person. It makes audible the natural spectrum of the voice so that magical bell-like or flute-like sounds are heard above a single note or fundamental, creating a unique otherworldly sound. The overtone scale underlies the natural order of the universe.
