  1. It sounds like a language spoken somewhere on the Indian sub-continent, but I can’t really tell if it’s Dravidian or Indo-European.

    Another wild guess –> Konkani

  2. Doesn’t sound like Telugu to me, I’m gonna second the eastern Indic opinion and guess Oriya (just cause I’ve been thinking of Oriya lately).

  3. My thought was something Indian too, but then my wife went by and said “That sounds African”. Looking up retroflexes, I see that last weeks Bench and its neighbour Sheko, both have them, uniquely for Africa. This doesn’t sound like Bench at all, but since WP tells they’re not closely related, and since I’ve no better idea anyway, I’ll say Sheko.
