Canadian Inuit Throatsingers


Took this shot last week at the NYC International Polar Weekend at the American Museum of Natural History. The performers are Inuit sisters from Ottawa, Canada. According to the program notes, throatsinging is a unique type of vocalization whereby usually two people face each other and throatsing songs that imitate sounds found in nature and sounds of tools, such as: seagulls, geese, the wind, running water, and the saw.
