The Legend of the Flute Player

“A long time ago in the Valley of the Great Mountains, there was a small town where lived all the greatest musicians in the land..
From anywhere in the valley, music could be heard day and night as all the musicians played their instruments so that they might be known as the best.
In this town there lived a young boy named Avvaiyar whose only wish was to play beautiful music for everyone. But Avvaiyar did not have an instrument to play ….”

Happiness Is

Overtone singing – also known as overtone chanting, harmonic singing or throat 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 of the lips to produce a melody.
Each note is like a rainbow of sound. When you shoot a light beam through a prism, you get a rainbow. You think of a rainbow of sounds when you sing one note. If you can use your throat as a prism, you can expose the rainbow – through positioning the throat in a certain physical way, which will reveal the harmonic series note by note
Tibetan Buddhist chanting is a subgenre of throat singing, mainly practiced by monks of Tibet,Most often the chants hold to the lower pitches possible in throat singing. Various ceremonies and prayers call for throat singing in Tibetan Buddhism, often with more than one monk chanting at a time.
