It is predominantly practiced in rural areas of Central Asia, where it is called "kh??mei". The herder/hunter lifestyle in rural Central Asia, with its reliance on the natural world and deeply felt connection to the landscape, is reflected in this vocal tradition. Throat-singers often imitate sounds of the natural surroundings--animals, mountains, streams, and the harsh winds of the steppe. ?2008 Smithsonian Institution
