When you watch German musician Anna-Maria Hefele demonstrate a few polyphonic overtone singing techniques, you will get chills.

"Overtone singing is a voice technique where one person sings two notes at the same time," explains Hefele in the video above. On her website, Hefele says this style is originally from Mongolia, locally known as Sygyt.

Hefele has been studying throat singing since 2005, and is a classically trained singer who plays instruments like the harp, mandolin, piano, didgeridoo and Schwegel.
