Whistled Languages

There is in interesting article on BBC about whistled languages: http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20170525-the-people-who-speak-in-whistles

These languages seem to exist mostly in mountainous regions of the world, where the whistle can travel many kilometres bridging valleys and saving people long walks.

One of many examples on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBfwHMJtM7M (Silbo, Canary Islands)
