New York Times article: Turkish whistling language

From the article: “Muazzez Kocek, 46, is considered one of the best whistlers in Kuşköy, a village tucked away in the picturesque Pontic Mountains in Turkey’s northern Giresun province. Her whistle can be heard over the area’s vast tea fields and hazelnut orchards, several miles farther than a person’s voice. When President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey visited Kuşköy in 2012, she greeted him and proudly whistled, “Welcome to our village!””

Amazing whistling and a fascinating article! Thanks for sharing! :smiley:

I think that being around constant whistling would eventually do my head in but, hey, all the best to them as they seek to preserve their heritage…
