    Here's an extended version of Rainbow Voice from the same film, featuring a male virtuoso this time.
    WARNING: If you are listening through headphones, take care - the harmonics are quite piercing at times.


    Another awesome piece featured in the Baraka soundtrack. This one (by the original artist?) without Stearns' added atmospherics. I love the taiko drum beat at the end of Stearns' version, but this is more plaintive.

    Is it a sitar?

    Nope - violin. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L._Subramaniam

    There was a discussion re overtone or throat singing on another thread. Can't remember which one now but oldrover & me were attempting it. There's 'how to' vids on youtube. I've found I can get overtones emerging & although they're not very loud they're definitely there.

    The best ones imo are the mongolian ones. Some of the whistling flute-like overtones they get are quite amazing.
