Katajjaq is a form of throat singing practiced among the Inuit. It is a game of entertainment and friendly competition traditionally played only among women. Two players face each other holding oneanother's arms and begin singing rhythmic improvised sounds and words fitting each sound within the empty space of the other. The game lasts until one person can no longer keep singing and usually the duet is ended in laughter.
