My very first impression is something Japonic as I thought I heard “aru” which sounds Japanese. Maye Koranic or even something from Taiwan?
Could it be an Australian aboriginal language?
I think I hear the word ‘Comanche’ at 0:17. The problem is that the recording doesn’t sound much like Comanche, so it’s probably just an ‘acoustical illusion’!
Here’s a clue: this is a Micronesian language.
I’m guessing it’s Marshallese
The language is Namonuito, a Micronesian language spoken on Namonuito Atoll in the Caroline Islands in the Federated States of Micronesia.
The recording comes from YouTube
