El silbo gomero
The Gomeran whistled language consists of combinations of whistled vowels and consonants. Rising and falling tones and broken and continous pitches help to convey meaning. The sounds can travel up to two miles, which makes it possible to send messages across canyons and deep valleys quickly. It was widely used as a means of communication on the island up until the 1950's. Today, people in La Gomera do not need to whistle to communicate, but they have chosen to preserve this whistled language as part of their distinctive cultural heritage.
