Kulning - Ancient Swedish Herding Call

Kulning or herding call is a domestic Scandinavian music form, often used to call livestock down from high mountain pastures where they have been grazing during the day.

The song form is often used by women, as they were the ones tending the herds and flocks in the high mountain pastures. The song has a high-pitched vocal technique, so that it can be heard or be used to communicate over long distances.
