Kongar-Ol Ondar, Master Tuvan Throat Singer, Live on David Letterman,   1999

Kongar-Ol Ondar  1962-2013  Ave atque Vale

What you’re hearing is this singer’s voice, not a synthesizer.  He was able to vocalize between 2 and 4 notes simultaneously.  Since I have trouble vocalizing one note, to my mind, that’s quite an accomplishment.

My Wife Thinks You’re Dead, by Junior Brown. I very rarely post a “country and western” tune, but Junior Brown’s skills on the guitar he invented (with one neck a full steel guitar & one a Fender Telecaster) are amazing. If this post from a mid-nineties Conan show doesn’t convince you, go to YouTube and check out his cover of the kickass Hendrix classic Foxy Lady: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRwzeXiPy2s&feature=plcp
