Here’s a recording in a mystery language.

Can you identify the language, and do you know where it’s spoken?

    Guessing again could be Uralic maybe Nenets or even strange Turkic like Chuvash, on the other hand ???

  2. David Eger says:

    An Iranian language, perhaps? But I’m fairly sure it’s not Persian, Tadjik or Pashto.

  3. adnankhalil says:

    Kurdish, for sure it’s an Iranian language.

  4. TJ says:

    a language in the Iranian space apparently. I wonder if it could be Belochi?

  5. P. says:

    Sounds like there’s a consensus forming — but just to keep things interesting, I’ll guess that it’s one of the Tamazight/Berber languages.

  6. TJ says:

    P. wow .. this is waaaaaaaaaay long shot!

  7. Christopher Miller says:

    I agree, definitely an Iranian language, but which one is the question…

  8. David Eger says:

    Taking up adnankhalil’s suggestion of Kurdish, but deviating slightly from that path, I’m going to guess Gorani – a language spoken by Kurds but belonging to a distinct branch of the Iranian family.

  9. Simon says:

    The answer is Jakati (Baluj) – an Indo-Aryan language related to Punjabi and spoken mainly in Ukraine, and also in Afghanistan.

    The recording comes from the GRN.
