Octavists by The Elephant's Child

I had never heard the term “Octavist”, nor heard one sing. Amazing! The term “oktavist” describes a basso profundo singer with an extremely deep range. You’ll notice that the singers showcased in this video all sound unbelievably deep, with some making you question whether or not it’s humanly possible to produce such low notes. Their voices can go as deep as an octave below the bass staff.”

The octavists in this video are all Russian, but they exist all over the world.
