What an International Whistling Champion Sounds Like

Music to our ears.

Meet Christopher Ullman -- four-time national and international whistling champion. Although whistling may seem not the most "hip" thing to these days, there's still a vibrant culture dedicated to the perfection of the sonic craft. In the video above, Ullman explains in the above video by National Geographic, what distinguishes a champion whistler is the breadth of one’s pitch, as well as the range of audial embellishments they can produce using their lips, tongue and teeth. Check out the video for a display of true whistling mastery.
