Musician Shows How to Sing Two Notes at Once in Mesmerizing Video

Anna-Maria Hefele, a musi­cian based in Munich, has an unusu­al tal­ent. She can sing two notes at once. In the music world, it’s known as poly­phon­ic over­tone singing, and it’s believed that the prac­tice orig­i­nat­ed and still endures in Mon­go­lia. Above, Hefele offers a pret­ty cap­ti­vat­ing five-minute dis­play of her tech­nique. On her YouTube chan­nel, you can also find a series of lessons (sev­en so far) where Ann-Maria teach­es you the basics of poly­phon­ic over­tone singing here. Find the lessons here. Enjoy!
