What language are the African parts of the Lion King's songs?
I've established that the slang is Swahili. My friend's father was born and raised in Kenya and he says it is Swahili. But I think my friend only asked him about Hakuna Matata, which is Swahili. I'm talking the African chanting in Circle of Life and so forth. Another friend says it's Yoruba, and I seem to recall seeing "Yoruba:" on the DVD's subtitles when watching the Special Edition. But I don't own the DVD, I can't confirm this.
Please help. Google is telling me jack doodly except that they used XHOSA in the play!!!!!!! It's too complicated, I says!!!!! >
