Language quiz 12 March 2017 By Simon Here’s a recording in a mystery language. Can you identify the language, and do you know where it’s spoken?

I’d say Amerindian, but don’t know enough to narrow it down further.
Yes I also was thinking the Americas, either Mesoamerican or northern South American?
It’s spoken in Colombia and Brazil.
One of the language families that are found on both sides of the border between Columbia and Brazil is Tucanoan. Our mistery language of the week seems to have some similarities to Barasano.
The language is Kakwa or Cacua, a Nadahup language, or language isolate, spoken in Vaupés in Colombia and Amazonas in Brazil.
The recording comes from the GRN.
