I'm pretty sure Sakha and other Nothern Turkic are not intelligible either.
Nice song btw! I do like your entries, vijay (and now that I finally have an unlimited internet at home I can enjoy them as much as I want)!
I wonder why Turkic and Finno-Ugric languages spoken in Russia sound so much like Russian (with palatal consonants and vowel reduction). Was there a comparable mutual influence?

While the languages of the songs you post are: I-could-never-imagine-such-languages-spoken-by-so-few-people-in-geographical-places-that-I've-never-heard-let-alone-the-languages-could-exist-in-the-world.
I have no clue which variety of Ladin they sing in, maybe IpseDixit can enlighten us on this point.
