Throat Singing

Throat singing, known to the Inuit as katajjaq, is almost as old as the first igloo and considered one of the world's oldest forms of music. A guttural style of singing or chanting that produces multiple notes simultaneously through specialized vocalization techniques that come from the reverberation in the throat.

Throat singing is traditionnally performed in Nunavik by two women facing each other until one loses breath or starts to laugh

The songs created and sung are sounds and imitations of the north; sounds ranging from animals, nature, and love. It is also used as a friendly competetion between women themselves and also between women throat singing and men drum dancing.
