Mongolian Throat Singing

As I was searching for supplementary material for the Mongolian language class we are working on, I came across some videos on YouTube of Mongolian throat singing. I had heard the sound before, but never realized it was made by singing. I had always assumed it was an instrument similar to a flute. Simply amazing!

For your cultural edification: 

This link is a better example of the singing than the video below, but doesn’t allow embedding: http://youtube.com/watch?v=DY1pcEtHI_w
