Sounds like something from Indonesia or the Philippines to me. Just a guess.
Now that I have listened ti the clip again I keep hearing the word “hari” repeated which I know to be the Indonesian word for “day” so I think it is from that area.
Austronesian, I’d say – if it is a natural language, that is – because of the phonology and the numerous reduplications.
Uff!, there are many Austronesian languages…
I think that might be why I gave up looking. You are right. There are tons!
I think you have stumped us all!
The language is Numanggang, a Finisterre-Huon language spoken in Morobe Province in Papua New Guinea.
The recording comes from YouTube
