He will explain the cultural significance of khöömii in Mongolian and Tuvan cultures and will also explain the acoustical phenomenon of how a single person can produce drone and overtones at the same time. He will then engage workshop participants in experimenting with vowel sounds, breath support, and “shaha” (the basic technique for building a khöömii sound in Mongolia) with time throughout for participants to ask questions.
