What language is this?

Nice song. Catchy. Is it typical of the folk music of whatever region this is from as far as language?

sounds like Hungarian. I am pretty sure it is Hungarian or a similar Slavic language
They use a lot of "sh" in their pronunciation, just as us Poles.

I was leaning towards Hungarian as well, since it's rather unique.

Any other thoughts, or someone who knows for sure?
