Hello and thank you for add! I am from Romania and I am interested in Ethnomusicology. 

I am a singer, and I like the songs that I had learned from my grandmother. Now I want to study what I have learned in a professional way.

So here we are. I study at Academia de Muzică - Gh. Dima from Cluj. I want to start a project, but right now I need help.
My study will refer to some vocal techniques used in Romania, and special to a form of yodelling. To see about what I am talking, I will post some videos. It appear in New Grove called glottal clucking.

I need a bibliography which could help me – related with a form of this technique from your countries.
The libraries from Cluj are poor in information about this subject, and that’s what I need your help.
Thank you! (promise to upgrade my english).

So.. videos:
North Romania – Maramureş (Maramuresh), which Bela Bartok studied, and he call it Schluckstöne: In another sources knots singing style.
