Starting a Debate on the Present and Future of the Tuvan Khoomei

Following the discussion raised by the recent Tuva-Online information on the present and future of khoomei, I just want to say, no one can throatsing like a Tuvan. The nature of it cannot be recreated by anyone else - it's just not the same. There is overtone singing and then there is Tuvan throat-singing. When I hear Westernized overtone singing, it is a technique. When I hear Tuvan throat-singing it is like that person's soul appearing right before me, from the mouth, as if it were the most natural thing in the world. The two sound very different to me. Anyone can overtone sing with practice, no one can Khoomei like a Tuvan!
