Laghu language

Laghu (pronounced "Lagoo") sometimes known as Lagu or Katova, is a near-extint language of the Solomon Islands, spoken in the regions of Santa Isabel, villages of Baolo and Samasodu in the Kia District before the British made a protectorate over the Solomon Islands in the 1890's and thus the take-up of English [ [http://www.ethnologue.com/show_language.asp?code=lgb Ethnologue report for language code:lgb] ] .

Acclaimed Chinese singer Sa Ding Ding uses it as one of many languages she sings in.
