Yeni song

Postby aaakknu » 2017-06-30, 11:45

Wikipedia wrote:The Yeni language is an extinct language of Cameroon, formerly spoken around Djeni Mountain in the Nyalang area. All that remains of the language, apparently, is a song remembered by some Sandani speakers. However, according to Bruce Connell (the first linguist to report its existence, in 1995), comparison of the song's words to neighboring languages suggests that "it was closely related to [the Mambiloid languages] Cambap, Njerep, and Kasabe"

Can I find the lyrics and audio of the song somewhere on the internet?
Здайся на Господа у твоїх справах, і задуми твої здійсняться. (Приповідки 16, 3)

I doubt it's possible. I don't usually find things like this on the Internet. Sorry!
