Link to Inuit throat singing?
The current text has " throat-singing or overtone-singing, is a method in which the singer simultaneously produces a low drone and a series of higher melodies over the drone note. This music is utterly unique ..." Actually, it is not entirely unique. Canadian Inuit (Eskimo) certainly have a well-developed tradition of throat singing and I think other arctic peoples do as well. There are differences, though; Tuvan throat singing is mainly done by men where the Inuit singing I have heard (all people from around Hudson Bay) has all been by pairs of women.

- Monks in Tibet do throat singing, too, but to my knowledge, the Tuvans have developed it to its greatest extent, with some florid melodies. If you haven't heard Tuvan throat singing, I encourage you to check it out. Ikan Kekek (talk) 02:06, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
Rail service update
Current text has:
- The new railway is now under construction, which is scheduled to finish by 2012.
This was recently moved from Tuva to Tyva by User:Agilight. I'm inclined to think that was an error since policy at Wikivoyage:Naming_conventions is to use the commonest English name, & Tuva is the only name I have seen. WP has w:Tuva & the Genghis Blues site uses Tuva.
- Thanks. But you should know that this issue is changes: Enciclopedia Britannica. Russian word "Tuvinskii" is not relies on native pronounce. We pronounce Kyzyl (Кызыл), than we should call Tyva (Тыва). --Agilight (talk) 00:37, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
- As Pashley said, Wikivoyage policy is to use the name that's most commonly used in English, regardless of anything else. I, too, had never seen any name but Tuva, so I would also suggest changing the article's name back until such time as the Tyva spelling is used more in English-language publications.

- I fixed most of the few links that pointed to Tyva.
- The exception is Tyvan phrasebook which I think needs both a name change & some text changes. Pashley (talk) 12:00, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
