    How about Haussa in Northern Nigeria?

  4. Aeetlrcreejl says:

    It’s not Hausa, I heard a velar nasal.

    It’s definitely Malay or something similar.

  5. TJ says:

    I agree it is some where in far east …. maybe Malay, or Indonesian.

  6. Simon says:

    Interesting guesses. It’s in fact Hausa, which is spoken mainly in northern Nigeria and Niger by about 39 million people. The recording comes from Deutsche Welle.
