The art of throat singing

From Upbeat, 1:40 pm on 13 November 2017

One of the oldest forms of music is filling Wellington’s City Gallery this week. Throat singer and improviser Jonny Marks brings his almost meditative style of singing alive with orchestra Stroma for its Spectral Electric concert, which explores a new frontier of soundscapes and technology.

Jonny explains the art of throat singing, why he chose to do it and his road to discovering his unique voice.

Jonny dropped into RNZ back in 2015 to give us a masterclass in throat singing:
