The harmonic chant remained very popular in Central Asia among the shepherds and the people of Altaï bus very narrowly connected to the practices animists and chamanic, of the vocal traditions which influenced those of the Buddhist sung prayers thereafter. Many are the legends which circulate on its origins.
Mongolian says that several varieties of birds produce sounds of throat: the bittern, a heron of rather large size, when it plunges its head under water emits a similar sound; the crane that the tradition makes live three thousand years has a particular song which, when it is heard, is regarded as one predicts long life; the rustle produced by the wings of the “cock of snow”, a bird very running in particular in the areas of the lakes, resembles appears it with this song. It song of throat (xöömii) is sometimes called “the echo of the voice” or “the echo of the bird” by wandering Mongolian who dialogues naturally with the forces of the spirits.

Legendary also are the rivers and the cascades which produce various combinations of sounds according to types' of stones on which they frayent a way, each one being symbolically representative of a different overtone. The Eev river and its water falls would be at the origin of xöömii. Although Mongolian knows his name in general, they say not to be able to indicate its exact site. In the past, the old ones had habit to say that they wished to drink of its water before dying and that the beings which had been born close to its banks became excellent singers very enduring and having a nobility of soul.
