Very interesting. This looks different from Tuvan throat singing, where the overtones actually come from the larynx. (Speech pathologists call it a "laryngeal whistle.")

I have no idea how to amplify an overtone with your mouth. This is the first I've ever heard of that. I'll have to do some reading on this.
