Said to produce higher states of awareness and trance, anthropologists say it may have been used in aboriginal rituals as early as 40,000 years ago. Circular breathing (breathing in and out at the same time), and a variety of vocal and tonguing techniques allow the player to produce a rich drone, full of overtones and countless textures, with many rhythmic elements.View more
