It sounds African to me, that’s all I can say at the moment …
I must agree with Emanuel in that it is African. I thought I heard “mbili” which sounds like something in Swahili but these quizzes are never that simple! Lol Still, I be it’s from the Bantu family or at least sub-Saharan.
Here’s a clue – this language is spoken in West Africa. It’s not a Bantu language, by the way.
There is a word that sounds like ‘kanuri’ to me at 00:08 – so maybe that’s what it is?
Is it southern Birifor?
Or, better yet, Dagaare?
Yes, it is! Well done, Hank!
PHEW!! You have to listen to a LOT of these languages before you can find the right answer!
The language is Dagaare, a Gur language spoken in Ghana and Burkina Faso.
The recording comes from YouTube
