Ventricular Fold Vibration-Tuvan Singer

Things to notice: the constriction of the vestibule of the larynx; compare this to the more open area around and at the vocal folds when he stops singing, and when he speaks in normal voice. Also, you can see the two levels of kargyraa phonation: at the level of the vocal folds (lower, and partially occluded, and the ventricular folds, which are vibrating ABOVE the vocal folds. The ventricular folds are the source of the low tones, NOT something low in the neck as claimed by others here at YouTube.
