An African language but nothing more specific. 😃
I think this is African but not Afro-Asiatic. Possibly Bantu.
I agree with Emanuel. It’s got to be Bantu (sounds a lot like Swahili to me). At least we have a week to do some searching.
Looked through the entire list of Bantu AND Bantoid languages. Closest I could come to is a guess of Bulu.
Bulu features unmistakable nasal vowels but I am not sure if the language in the recording does.
The language is Yao (chiYao), a Bantu language spoken in Malawi, Tanzania, Mozambique and Zambia.
The recording comes from YouTube
