Throat Singing In Inuit Culture

Written by Clint Leung

Originally, Inuit throat singing was a form of entertainment among Inuit women whilerepparttar men were away on hunting trips. It was an activity that was primarily done by Inuit women although there have been some men doing it as well. Inrepparttar 136753 Inuit language Inuktitut, throat singing is called katajjaq, pirkusirtuk or nipaquhiit depending onrepparttar 136754 Canadian Arctic region. It was regarded more as a type of vocal or breathing game inrepparttar 136755 Inuit culture rather than a form of music.

Inuit throat singing is generally done by two individuals but can involve four or more people together as well. In Inuit throat singing, two Inuit women would face each other either standing or crouching down while holding each other's arms. One would lead with short deep rhythmic sounds whilerepparttar 136756 other would respond. The leader would repeat sounds with short gaps in between. The follower would fill in these gaps with her own rhythmic sounds. Sometimes both Inuit women would be doing a dance like movement like rocking from left to right while throat singing. Sounds produced can be voiced or unvoiced and produced by inhalation or exhalation. Both Inuktitut words and meaningless syllables are used in Inuit throat singing songs. However, when words are used in throat singing, no particular meaning is placed on them for a song. When meaningless syllables are used, they are often portrayals of soundsrepparttar 136757 Inuit hear in their natural environment such as animal sounds or even water running down a creek.
