    hmm I can’t see the player. Something wrong with my browser maybe?

  2. Simon says:

    I noticed that the player I usually use wasn’t appearing yesterday and am trying to find one that works.

  3. Tom says:

    It appears in the RSS feed version…

    maybe somewhere in indochina – burmese border

  5. TJ says:

    OK I listened to it now.
    Not sure exactly, but seems from southeast Asia.

  6. Vijay John says:

    I agree, I’m willing to go with the guess that it’s one of those minority languages in Myanmar (and possibly one of the Thai Hill Tribes languages).

  7. Sean Hsu says:

    Sounds like from Tibeto-Burman language family. I remember have heard Burmese in previous post here, so perhaps it’s Tibetan or dialects spoken in Tibet?

  8. josé caribarro says:

    my guess – zaiwa

  9. Vijay John says:

    I have my doubts; it doesn’t sound like Tibetan to me. I think I’ll continue to stick with my previous guess.

  10. Simon says:

    The answer is Sedang, an Austro-Asiatic language spoken in eastern Laos and south central Vietnam.

    The recording comes from the GRN.
