Overtone and throat singing

Raphaël De Cock 
Molière Theatre - Galerie de la Porte de Namur, 3 Square du Bastion, 1050 Bruxelles

The technique of overtone singing consists in singing one or several tones above the vocal drone: one person is singing as if there were two voices. In this workshop, you will get familiar with overtone singing and styles of throat singing from different parts of the world (khoomei from Tuva and Mongolia, Umngqokolo from South-Africa, overtone polyphony, ‘a tenore’ singing from Sardinia, etc.). Throughout the course, we will focus on the throat singing styles from the Russo-Siberian Republic of Tuva (from the North-East to Mongolia).

After a vocal warm-up and some group exercises, Raphaël will explain the different techniques step by step. The class is given monthly, so that the students are given time to assimilate the techniques, to practice and to be able, during the next class, to go one step further in the wonderful world of vocal harmonics. Who knows, this might lead to a real overtone singing choir!
