Steve Sklar is the leading performer and teacher of khoomei, or Tuvan Throat-Singing, in the west. Rather than focus on simpler western overtone singing, he has mastered the traditional Tuvan techniques. He has developed unique methods for teaching throat-singing and the Tibetan low, chordal chant voice. He has for several years been associated with the Tuvan master ensemble, Huun-Huur-Tu, at http://www.huunhuurtu.com.
He runs the comprehensive, premier throat-harmonic-overtone singing site, http://khoomei.com, where enthusiasts, or Khoo-Maniacs, can download video lessons. He is the founder of the International Association for Harmonic singing. He also performs with the ensembles Big Sky (at http://www.bigskyrocks.com) as a guitarist, throat-singer, producer, and engineer; and the Overtone Orchestra as a throat-singer, didgeridoo player, percussionist.
There are mp3s, Quicktime movies, photos, and articles by Sklar at these two web sites.
