Inside this inaccessible land, a unique form of harmonic overtone singing evolved, called xöömei, (of which there are many styles) in which two or three different pitches are produced at once. The sounds often mimic nature – singing birds, thundering herds of horses, winds whipping through the forest trees.

The songs relate tales from the lives of herdsmen and hunters, from their love lives to their travels to their daily routine.
