:lol:
It is composed of many dialects.

I've tried to post songs in various dialects of Mongolian. Which one is this one in, do you know? Halh/Khalkha?

Urarina is a language isolate spoken in the Loreto Region of northwestern Peru, in the Amazon rainforest. (There are a lot of language isolates spoken in the Amazon rainforest). This is a Christian song/hymn in Urarina, which is then sung in Spanish (so far, I think every song I have found in Urarina is of this type and possibly by the same group of people):

Awajún a.k.a. Aguaruna is another Jivaroan language (there is only one Jivaroan language I haven't posted a song in yet, namely Huambisa, and I can't seem to find any recordings of songs in it anyway) spoken in the Peruvian Amazon. This is a video of its speakers from a few years ago along with a few song excerpts in the language:

I've never heard of this language. It must be very obscure.

I think I meant to say this earlier but forgot, or maybe I got confused because for some reason, it didn't occur to me that the song opipik posted could be in English and Gumatj.

Cool, I posted a song in Khasi once, too!

I hope it's not.

Yolngu Matha is a macrolanguage composed of 5~30 different dialects with minor differences in phonology (some don't have long vowels and some have only one stop series (voiced/lenis)) It is spoken in Arnhem Land, Australia.

Brazilian Portuguese is a Romance language spoken by a Brazilion of people in Brazil, Boston and Florida. The next video shows an interview with an insane woman after she tried to murder her husband, turned into a Christian song. At least, it's what I understood from the original interview, but who knows? She is insane.

Hey, even I don't introduce a language more than once! :nono: :P

I don't think so, given that many of Yothu Yindi's members (including some of its founding members) are Indigenous Australians themselves (specifically Yolngu).

Yanesha('), a.k.a. Amuesha or Amoesha, is a language from the Arawakan family spoken in Peru. The Arawakan language family is one of the most widespread in South America and are or used to also be spoken in Central America and the Caribbean. The first indigenous people Christopher Columbus met in the Americas were the Taíno, who spoke an Arawakan language. Yanesha' is spoken in the Amazon rainforest; however, its speakers are close enough to the Andes to have been formerly dominated by the Inca Empire, as a result of which it has a lot of Quechua loanwords as well. This is a song in Yanesha' about a tiger performed by Eduardo Ortiz Espíritu, preceded by an introduction in Spanish (the actual song starts around 3:05):

Do they really sing "listen" here, instead of "lissen"?

No, not from what I can tell, at least. :hmm:

Metal in Yiddish. Not my favourite music genre but the genre+language combination is cool:

Hmmm I don't think "tragic" is the best translation. Maybe melancholic, sorrowful, etc.
