Hey there, opipik! Thanks for posting songs in Dzongkha and Tshangla! :mrgreen:

Woun Meu a.k.a. Wounaan or Noanamá is another Chocoan language spoken on both sides of the border between Panama and Colombia (but with, I believe, more speakers in Colombia than in Panama). This is a dance and song in Woun Meu performed in Bogotá for a traditional holiday or festival called "Carichipari":

Tsafiki a.k.a. Tsáchila or Colorado is a Barbacoan language spoken in Ecuador. "Tsa'fiki" appears to be what its speakers call the language, "Tsáchila" seems to be what they call themselves, and "Colorado" is derived from the fact that men in this ethnic group dye their hair with annatto seeds mixed with grease. There is a legend that a shaman told their people that this would protect them against an illness (Wikipedia says smallpox; a member of this ethnic group in a video I found on YouTube says fiebre amarilla 'yellow fever' in Spanish). This is a song in this language by a band called Generación Tsáchila called "Jodo Mishu":

Secoya is a Western Tukanoan language spoken by about 700 people in Peru and 400 in Ecuador in the Amazon rainforest. Until recently, the Secoya people used to share territory with the Siona people, who speak another Western Tucanoan language, and they are sometimes considered one group together. Despite having maintained their culture for a long time, they are now being assimilated into Ecuadorian society. This is a song in Secoya by Rolando Lusitande with subtitles in Spanish:

If he posts one by ay on average he'll cover them all in a little more than 25 years, I think.

Ah, but part of the interesting thing about my quest to post (at least) one song per language is seeing how many languages I can find any songs in! For example, there are about 20 languages in this group of languages from India, but I've only ever found songs in five or six of them (and posted one each in five of them).

Also, h34 and opipik have been helping me out at least a little so far. ;)

Anyway, Wao(rani) a.k.a. Huao(rani), S(s)abela, Au(i)shiri, and Wao Terero is a language isolate spoken in the Ecuadorian Amazon. There may also be some speakers in Peru. This is a song in Waorani, followed by an explanation in Spanish of what it means:

Yeah, although I think it's starting to get cold, so maybe next year or something! (When it's cold here, I tend to post songs in languages spoken in areas where cold weather exists :D).

Varieties of Quechua are not exclusively spoken in the Andes; there are some that are spoken in the Amazon Rainforest, too. This is a song called "Sikwanka" (meaning 'toucan') in one of the varieties of Quechua spoken in the Amazon, possibly Northern Pastaza Quechua, which is spoken mainly in Ecuador with some speakers in Peru as well. The video includes subtitles in Spanish:

Shuar (also known by various names that are not derogatory, the most famous of which is probably "Jivaro") is a Jivaroan ( :P ) language spoken in the Ecuadorian Amazon, specifically in Morona-Santiago Province and Pastaza Province. I think I've heard a song in Shuar before, but IIRC it was a shaman song and didn't sound like it had any actual words in it. This is a song in Shuar, though (and doesn't exactly sound like it's a traditional song, either...):

That's like 99.7% the "Indian"/"Native Brazilian" songs/culture they ever showed on TV.
