University Of Arizona Researchers Discover How Tuvan Throat Singing Works

Now for something a little — or a lot — different for The Show at the end of the week: Tuvan throat singing.

Researchers at the University of Arizona have uncovered the secret to how this central Asian practice is done.

When you hear it, you’ll understand why it was a mystery to begin with. These singers somehow make two different sounds at once.

Professor Brad Story is with the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences at the University of Arizona. He spoke with The Show about the study.
