Kirundi a.k.a. Rundi is the official language of Burundi along with English and French and also the sole national language. It's mutually intelligible with Kinyarwanda. Unsurprisingly, it's also spoken across the borders with the three countries that border Burundi other than Rwanda, namely Tanzania, Uganda, and the DRC. This is a folk song in Kirundi from Burundi called "Vyagira Muri Beza" performed by Club Culturel Ihunja in 2014:

Joba is apparently a variety of Fuliiru, which in turn is closely related to Shi. This is a link from the GRN with two clips, each beginning with a song that's supposedly in Joba. I'm listening to the song in the first one, which ends around 1:34:

(tr),(el-PNT) I am little bit confused by this song. I think the singer could be Georgian or Greek, but in the commentaries they say it’s an Armenian song, but sung in Turkish and Pontic Greek, that I didn’t know before. I have to document myself about it. And BTW, much of the commentaries are in Russian, I don’t know exactly why :hmm:
