Brahui

Postby Æxylis » 2010-12-18, 8:42

I just found out about this language recently and I thought it seemed interesting and worthy of merit...
First of all, it is one of the most isolated of the dravidian languages and it's currently written in the arabic script, although a latin-based script has been recently proposed for it...
I don't know much else about the language yet as there's not much info about it, but it seems like a language worth mentioning

This is apparently a folk song in Brahui. If I remember correctly, the Brahui are in close contact with the Baloch (to the point that outsiders ofen fail to tell the difference), and this (partly) affects their music (and various other aspects of Brahui culture. There are a lot of Iranian loanwords in Brahui, too):
