  1. Roger Bowden says:

    Amerindian with Spanish influence.

  2. Daydreamer says:

    I agree with Roger and I don’t think this language is spoken in South America, but rather in Central America – Southern USA or Mexico,
    Wouldn’t be surprised if it belonged to the Uto-Aztecan or the Oto-Manguean family, but can’t get more concrete than that.

  3. Heike says:

    I agree that it’s likely Central American or Mexican indigenous with Spanish influence. I can’t be more precise than that.

  4. Simon says:

    Here’s a clue – this is a Mayan language.

  5. Simon says:

    The answer is Q’anjob’al / Kanjobal, a Mayan language spoken mainly in Huehuetenango Department of Guatemala.

    The recording comes from the GRN.
