If you read Spanish, try the Silbo Gomero site itself, which contains samples of whistled dialogues, bibliography and research material:

Hi, Stephanie,

I checked Wikipedia and found an article on whistle languages:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whistled_language (the external links have some sound recordings, eg.:)

http://www-01.sil.org/mexico/chinanteca/sochiapam/13i-Conversacion-cso.htm (has transcript, and 3 WAV, mp3 and RealMedia sound encodings)

You might also try Googling 'whistled languages' (with double quotes) or various synonyms and combinations. Good luck.
