The Mongolian traditional art of Khöömei

UNESCO: Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity – 2010 URL: http://www.unesco.org/culture/ich/RL/… Description: Khöömei is a form of singing originating in western Mongolia, in the Altai mountains. The performer imitates sounds of nature, simultaneously emitting two distinct vocal sounds: along with a continuous drone, the singer produces a melody of harmonics. Khöömei literally means pharynx, and it is believed to have been learned from birds, whose spirits are central to shamanic practices. The multitude of Khöömei techniques in Mongolia are grouped within two main styles: the ”kharkhiraa” (deep Khöömei) and ”isgeree” Khöömei (whistled Khöömei). In ”kharkhiraa” the singer sings a drone in a normal voice, while emphasizing the undertone or subharmonic one octave below. In ”isgeree” Khöömei, it is the overtones above the fundamental note of the drone that are emphasized, creating a higher-pitched whistle. In both cases, the drone is produced with very taut vocal cords, and the melody is created by modulating the size and shape of the mouth cavity, opening and closing the lips and moving the tongue. Khöömei is performed by Mongolian nomads in a variety of social occasions, from grand state ceremonies to festive household events. Khöömei is also sung during herding, and inside the yurt to lull babies to sleep. Traditionally, Khöömei is transmitted orally from bearer to learner, or via master-to-apprentice.

Ajoutée le 11 oct. 2008

A mongolian orchestra “Hosoo Transmongolia” gives a concert in St. Jacobs Church in Copenhagen, Denmark. They play traditional Mongolian folk-music and they use a very speciel songtechnique, “Mongolian höömii”. It is a kind of “throat song” where overtones appear and become the main sound in the song. The orchestra uses traditional instruments, morin khuur (horse head fiddle),ikh khuur (horse head bass), ever buree (oboe) and traditional drum. The songs are from different parts of Mongolia. Many of the songs are about horses and the life on the Mongolian steppe, and some songs are shaman songs.

GANZORING Au cœur d’une nature encore sacralisée, la beauté âpre des montagnes sardes rencontre l’étendue des steppes de Mongolie. Cette rencontre inestimable mettra en valeur le trésor de ces peuples qui appartiennent à la même histoire universelle, derniers témoins d’un passé millénaire où l’homme savait s’allier à la nature…(Alain Weber) NOMADIC VOICES – Sardinia/Mongolia THE SONGS OF SARDINIAN TENORES AND THE DIPHONIC MONGOLIAN CHANT CUNCORDU E TENORE DE OROSEI MEETS MONGOLIAN SINGERS TS. TSOGTGEREL ET N. GANZORING In the heart of countryside still considered sacred, the harsh beauty of the Sardinian mountains meets the vast steppes through the polyphony of the Tenores and Khoomii overtone chants. This original work highlights the richness of these vocal techniques of people who belong to the same history of mankind and who are the last witnesses of ancient times when man knew how to be one with nature.
