Anna-Maria Hefele is a German overtone singer from Grafing near Munich. Her technique of singing polyphonic overtones is also known as "throat singing," and Hefele has been practicing it since 2005.
The Huffington Post has commented on her "amazing ability" and her singing being "utterly bizarre". On 10 October 2014, she was number two on The Guardian's Viral Video Chart.
One online video, Polyphonic Overtone Singing, features Hefele as she demonstrates and explains overtones (link below). As of December 2014, this video has received nearly 10 million hits.

There are several styles of overtone singing found around the world (link below). Hefele's style is culturally practiced in the Siberian region of Tuva. This whistling vocal version is called sygyt.
After all, it is 4/20
