An Amazonian tribe uses a language based on drumming that allows them to communicate with people up to 20km away.
In a new study, published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, researchers analysed this unusual mode of communication and found that it bears many of the hallmarks of spoken language, imitating the melody and rhythm of words and sentences.
The Boras are an indigenous group occupying the Peruvian and Colombian Amazon, currently comprising only around 1,500 people.
