    Sounds like there are a few Arabic loanwords in the passage, like ‘dunya’ and ‘shetan’. Could be an Indian or Southeast Asian language.

  2. Roger Bowden says:

    Perhaps West African like Wolof or Fula languages.

  4. Simon says:

    The answer is Kassonke or Western Maninka (Xaasongaxango), a Mande language spoken in Mali and Senegal.

    The recording comes from the GRN.
