Thread Name: How to learn a song in another language?
Subject: RE: How to learn a song in another language?
I know next to nothing about African languages, but according to the "Free Language Identifier" it is Makhuwa. I view this skeptically. whatlanguageisthis.com called it "Tagalog", but the Tagalog/English translator couldn't convert it, and at one point, FLI called it Swahili. Makhuwa is spoken in Mozambique, as is Portuguese, but not Spanish. Spanish however(as I am sure you know), is spoken in the Phillipines--

I was going to speculate about Santaria in the Phillipines or the African religion in Mozambique as a connection, but then I thought maybe somebody just liked the song, whatever it might be about...   

And yes, I have a life, I am just avoiding it right now!:-)
