    It’s the Internationale, but I don’t know the language.

    OK, I found the language by checking these translations (it was fairly easy):

    But I’m not giving away the answer so other people can have some fun :)

    based on that l’internationale is the song of socialism/communism and based on the beats and words, i will guess albanian.

  4. Harris Engelmann says:

    i’m gonna guess albanian. definitly middle eastern sounding music, but the language doesn’t fit arabic hebrew or aramit.

  5. Harris Engelmann says:

    oops maybe not. how about kurdish?

  6. Halabund says:

    Yes, it’s Kurdish.

  7. Simon says:

    The language is indeed Kurdish and the song is the Internationale. The recording comes from this site, which has recordings of the Internationale in quite a few other languages.
