"El Silbo" in La Gomera: The whistled language

It was declared as a masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2009.The whistled language of La Gomera, the Silbo Gomero, replicates the islanders’ habitual language (Spanish) with whistling. It is the only whistled language in the world that is fully developed and practised by a large community (more than 22,000 inhabitants). Taught in schools since 1999, the Silbo Gomero is understood by almost all islanders and practised by the vast majority, particularly the elderly and the young. It is also used during festivities and ceremonies, including religious occasions.
