    Judging from the accent, it must be one of those tonal African languages, but it also sounds a bit Asian.

  2. Simon says:

    It is a tonal language, but not one from Africa.

    - The indigenous language of Taiwan, perhaps?? References to ‘Yeshua’ and the ‘Amen’ at the end point to the fact that this passage is some sort of Biblical account.

    Wow, I figured this one out unexpectedly fast! It’s Akha. See http://globalrecordings.net/en/program/C06760.

  5. Simon says:

    Vijay John is right – the answer is Akha, a Lolo-Burmese language spoken in Burma, China, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam.
