When talking about whistling music particularly, it is something everyone and anyone might have witnessed. People whistle casually, and whistling is music in itself. Artists have created the most famous music by just unconsciously whistling. So basically, Whistling music has been amongst us for quite the long time.
In North Carolina, there is an annual event that takes place and has been a tradition since 1973. The International Whistling Convention is an event where the Governor is expected to sign a declaration, declaring the entire week of the IWC event as the “Happy Whistlers Week” for the citizens and visitors to honour the art of whistling.
Whistling music is found in so many films, music, shows and so many things that we don’t even notice. If you are a fan of cartoons, then you must have to watch Ed, Edd and Eddy when in was aired on Cartoon Network. The famous theme song of the cartoon was based on whistling. Till this day, people remember that whistle theme song.
Whistling is a part of our everyday life, and we don't notice it even. As it has been used in theme songs for TV shows and cartoons, it is also a big part of classical songs and contemporary pop hits.
Classical songs like ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’ and ‘Wind of change’ consist of whistling music. While newer contemporary pop songs like Selena Gomez’s ‘Kill ‘Em With Kindness’, Maroon 5’s ‘Moves Like Jagger’ and Flo Rida’s ‘Whistle’ are pretty famous.
Whistling music has particular voice types, which are a soprano or an alto. Now as a fact, soprano whistlers are found around quite often, the alto whistlers are always hard to find. I used to be a soprano singer in the school choir, and I can't imagine how someone could whistle on a low octave as much as an alto.
But Whistling music is quite common in the world overall. It’s almost every day that you walk by someone on the street who’s whistling to themselves. This time you’ll be noticing their whistle, trying to notice whether they’re whistling in soprano or alto.
