Description
Mongols distinguish three styles of vocal emission. The first, khaylakh (literally, "to cry out") is the style used by men for the epic, tuuli and for magtaal songs of praise. It is easily recognized by its recitative mode, its grave register and its rough tone.
The second, duulakh "to sing" or ayalakh "melodious", is the sung style properly speaking. It is used in long songs, short songs and in certain magtaal. The voice, clear and strained, lends itself to various ornamental techniques depending on the kind of repertory.
Finally, the third, khöömii "pharynx", brings together all the biphonic voice or singing drone techniques. The khöömii is the simultaneous emission of a basic sound or drone in khaylakh style, and of a melody composed of overtones chosen by means of various pharyngal and buccal techniques. Three of the six techniques listed may be heard in this recording: tseedjnii khöömii or chest khöömii, with a relatively high-pitched, clear drone (upper G); bagalzuuriin khöömii or throat khöömii, with a rough drone of medium pitch (upper D); kharkhira khöömii, which makes use of resonators at chest level and so emits a drone an octave lower than that of the bagalzuuriin khöömii (lower D). Rarely sung by women, the khöömii does not have a repertory of its own. It is usually used for the melodies of short songs, for popular songs, or as an interlude between magtaal, songs of praise. -- booklet notes
