As part of the event, the gallery will host a demonstration and explanation of throat singing with Lydia Etok and Nina Segalowitz at 1 p.m. Lydia and Nina stopped by the WTIP studio to speak with Barbara Jean Johnson about the history of throat singing, how it’s used today, and what it means on a personal level to each of them.
