The sound of Basque

Basque is a language spoken in the Pyrenees Mountains, the border between France and Spain. I think there are more Basque in Spain than France. The language is supposed to be unrelated to any other language spoken today. I’ve always been curious about it, and I finally got to hear some samples of it here, on one of the BBC language pages. It really does sound different from anything I’ve heard before, not that that’s much.
