Throat Singers Gain New Status in Russia

The specialty throat singer (hoomeigi) has been added to the Uniform Qualifying Directory by the order of Ministry of Health and Social Development of the Russian Federation.
      It gives an opportunity to throat singers to retire after 15 years of performances.
      Tyva throat singers, earlier considered as vocalist performers, have thus received a new status that singles them out from other art workers.
      More than 1500 performers of hoomei (throat singing) have been registered in Tyva. Only 25 of them have the status of professional throat singers. A throat singer sings two notes simultaneously. Scientists assume that long-time execution of throat singing causes chronic diseases of cardiovascular and respiratory systems. It is especially hazardous for womens health and might even threaten childbearing.
