Abstract [en]

Cultural relativity is a key to much cultural research. What are its limits? The author describes the first world championship in chöömej (“throat singing”), held in Kyzyl, Tuva, Siberia, former USSR, 1993, in terms of a Barthesian ‘punctum’. From the perspective of the jury, the author discusses the capacities of the winner and concludes that one of these was an ability to overcome and transcend preconceptions of cultural relativity, a phenomenon of methodological and theoretical importance.
