    I’m from Burma, and this is definitely a minority Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Burma and neighbouring parts of north-west Thailand, but it’s NOT Burmese. More specifically, this is a language belonging to the Karennic sub-branch.

    My best guess would be “Pwo Karen”

  2. Mike says:

    My guess would be Dai.

    I was going to guess “South Asian”, i.e. around Thailand and Vietnam. So, what Bennie said, only less specific.

  4. My guess is “Mon Khmer” languages of Southeast Asia.

  5. Rauli says:

    I sounds Southeast Asian to me as well.

  6. Simon says:

    Bennie is right – the answer is Pwo Karen, a Tibeto-Burman language spoken mainly in Burma and Thailand.

    The recording comes from the Global Recordings Network.
