The Gyuto Monks of Tibet are masters of a deep harmonic overtone chanting, also known as throat singing. The sound has been compared to the resonance of a drum or digeridoo and is believed to have a transformative effect — removing impurities and clearing the path to enlightenment.

2011 Grammy-nominated album in the Traditional World Music category!
