The sounds and repetition of them makes me think it is from the south Pacific and might have some French influence. Something from New Caledonia?
I hear reduplication and a retroflex “r”. Could it be Dravidian?
The /ɨ/ sounded like Malagasy, maybe a closely related Dayak language?
Sounds west African something like Wolof
I am quite unsure about the language but the background music makes me think of SE-Asia.
The language is Boro / Bodo (बर’ राव), a member of the Sal branch of the Sino-Tibetan language family spoken in northeast India and eastern Nepal.
The recording comes from YouTube
