A kind of traditional singing characteristic for Inuit people living in North America. In contrast to the throat singing in Mongolia or in Tibet, the singer sings one single sound instead of a few ones at the same time.
Inuit women usually sing, though men who are able to do it might be found too. The technique of singing is as follows: two people stand opposite each other and one of them is the leading voice – she or he gives the rhythm of the melody, and the second singer responds with her or his singing.
Songs do not have a specific text – it is a sequence of unrelated words or syllables that imitate various sounds, e.g. made by animals.
