Mongolian Khöömii (Overtone/Undertone) Singing is an amazing art that needs to be seen and heard to be believed! One person can singing two notes at the same time, A low throaty drone with a high flute like harmonic melody magically floating on above.

This is the first time in Europe that a Khöömii festival has been organised. It is a unique opportunity to learn its history from the keepers of the tradition, from top Mongolian and UK academics, as well as the developments that have been made by Mongolian and Non Mongolian singers.

A Gala concert will celebrate the concluding part of the festival featuring Master Mongolian Khőőmii singer Tserendavaa, one of only three Khőőmii singers who have been bestowed the highest national culture award for his art. Exceptional Mongolian music group Khusugtun, Overtone Singers Michael Ormiston, Candida Valentino and special guests tbc.

The conference which is open to academics and non-academics will feature presentations, question and answer sessions and films with Tserendavaa, Dr Carole Pegg, Affiliated Scholar of the Faculty of Music and the Mongolia and Inner Asia Studies Unit (MIASU), Dept. of Social Anthropology, University of Cambridge, Ariunbold, Khusugtun’s leader, Overtone Singing Michael Ormiston, Candida Valentino plus other speakers tbc.

For more info please email ormi_khoomii@yahoo.com

These are the details so far there will be a few more presenters and we have room maybe for a short performance by one or two people who would like to perform. This would only be a 5 minute performance. If you wish to buy a ticket please email me as we still have not sorted out the ticketing system. As soon as I know I will let you know.
