    I think I heard an cluster, (fl), which raises some questions as to most Niger-Congo languages.

    Is it Moré? From Burkina Faso!

  6. Tigerfire says:

    For something completely out of left field, I’ll says that it sounds Austronesian and is probably Atayal, spoken in Taiwan.

  7. Simon says:

    The answer is Mandinka (Mandingo / لغة مندنكا), a Mande language spoken in Mali, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea-Bissau and Chad.

    The recording comes from the GRN.
