  1. I think it’s African (possibly Bantu?) but there seems to be so many vowel sounds maybe it’s Polynesian?

  2. I don’t think this is Polynesian, Hank – because
    1. I hear sounds that Polynesian languages normally do not exhibit (labialised m, palatal ɲ, affricates),
    2. there are a few consonant clusters and
    3. I do not understand or recognise a word in this song, except “lila” which could be anything, including German …
    Austronesian is possible, though.

  3. One of the reasons I love these quizzes so much is to get the ideas and gain knowledge from other people who find languages as interesting as I do.Thanks for your comment, Emmanuel.

  4. For me it’s Bantu for sure, and I lean towards the area of Malawi or Mozambique, it could be Chichewa, Nyanja or Jao.

  5. Confirmed.Thinking that it could be Chichewa I have looked on the internet and I have seen that it is a traditional song sung by Britta.
