Tenori di Oniferi

Traditional polyphonic singing from Sardinia. The harmonies these guys make give me the chills. First time I heard them I could tell the singing involved extended vocal techniques (throat singing; listen especially to the lowest voice), but beyond that I just bathed in the mystery of their sound. If you’re curious about what they’re doing, here’s a review of one of their CDs that explains things pretty well.
