Throat singing

Overtone singing, also known as overtone chanting, or harmonic singing, is a type of singing in which the singer manipulates the resonances (or formants) created as air travels from the lungs, past the vocal folds, and out the lips to produce a melody.

Another name for overtone singing is throat singing, but that term is also used for Inuit throat singing, which is produced differently.
