An oud? What a cool seque!
Don't know about the origin of the melody, but it was also used in this Hindi song from a 1996 Bollywood movie:

Read the synop on IMDb if you want to know more about the movie (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0116950/)

|I think Sivert is one of the best new (ok, not so new) voices around. Range, scale and emotion! His work with Madrugada, and now solo, very impressive. Wish him success!!|

|Its amazing how such an unconventional arrangement of sounds and melodies can become so instantly identifiable and so entrenched in pop culture. Wonder if this would have become popular without the context of the movie....|

I miss the Gipsy King's version of Hotel California which is unbelievable IMHO.
Can hear Hotel California chords...

|Is there something off about this song or is it just me? In some portions she appears to be singing a bit off-key, while the instruments are too loud or the beat is behind her or something.|

|Then there came a day.|
It moved out 'cross the Mediterranean.
Came to western isles and the Greek young men.
And with their silver beards they laughed
At the unknown universe.
They could sit and guess God's name.
But they said,
How could it come to this?
We're really worried about living.
How could it come to this.
Yeah, we really want to know about this.
Is it like today?
The perfect song for Greece's current troubles...?

|Still can't figure out why someone would choose to sing in an old man's voice. If this is natural, he must have been very popular in school |

|Heard them live in San Francisco! Awesome talent!|
The percussion sounds are Gabriela using her wrist on the guitar. It seems she has no bones in her wrist, the way she moves it!!

|I like the song a lot, even though I don't understand it. But I get the feeling they have melded a few too many styles/arrangements...|

|Every time I hear this song (the first couple of lines at least), I think its Roy Orbison. Its quite distinct though.|
