  1. There are some sounds that sound like Vietnamese but I hear no tones. A really wild guess (and I mean wild!) is Khmer. Who knows?!

  2. I feel like it’s Hmong-Mien, Austroasiatic, or Kra-Dai. Maybe Zhuang? Beyond that I have no idea

  5. The answer is Khmu (ກຶມຫມຸ‎), a member of the Khmuic branch of the Austroasiatic language family spoken mainly in Laos, and also in Vietnam, Thailand and China.

    The recording comes from YouTube:
