    Great video, I have to show this to my friends on Facebook! I always wondered how to do this.

    That was amazing. I cannot find within the language that I just heard, the connection to any other language except maybe some from the Amazon River regions. I did not know of the clicking sound being apart of our Indigenous language here in N. America. Thank you for that.
