Natascha Nikeprelevic Is an Overtone Singer, Producing Two Sounds at Once

It’s an ancient art.

Natascha Nikeprelevic is known as one of the premier overtone singers in the world. She has perfected an ancient art of singing that is believed to have started among tribes in western Mongolia and southern Siberia. Originally, these tribes thought this type of singing could be used to communicate with both the natural and supernatural worlds. Overtone singing is a rare skill where singers create two notes simultaneously, resulting in a meditative, spiritual sound.

Nikeprelevic studied for six years at the Accademia Capraia in Italy and was later an instructor at the school, teaching overtone singing and extended vocal techniques. According to her website, Nikeprelevic has a busy international touring schedule and holds regular workshops and master classes in overtone singing throughout Europe, Asia, and Canada.



Seventy-five years ago, on January 27, 1945, the Soviet Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland.

Auschwitz was the deadliest of Nazi Germany's 20 concentration camps. From 1940 to 1945 of the 1.3 million prisoners sent to Auschwitz, 1.1 million died. That figure includes 960,000 Jews, 74,000 non-Jewish Poles, 21,000 Roma, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and up to 15,000 other Europeans.

The vast majority of the inmates were murdered in the gas chambers while others died of starvation, disease, exhaustion, and executions.
