It's a mix of languages: I see here Polish, Russian and Czech

Is there any more language here?

Or may is Interslavic?

I am a native Russian speaker who understands about 80% of the sung.

This band sings in different Slavic languages so I want to make sure if it's not one of them

We had this discussion in the past. Verdict: constructed language (based mainly on Polish, Russian and a bit of Czech)

It's Slovenian.

If it was a single language even GT from Slovenian to Polish would spit out something "normal". As I know, unfortunately only "second hand", from Polish speaking friends, Slovenian is the most close to Polish in the group of Southern Slavs languages. I tried GT with Slovenian and the output to Polish (and English) was simply ridiculous. As I said, we had this discussion a year ago or more, and decided then it's a constructed Slavic language. I, we all, could be wrong, but you should try your hand in a translation to Russian and/or English, before throwing such a "bomb" at us just out of the blue, don't you think so?

There are some dialects in Slavic folk songs, can't be translated by GT.
For example that Chech dialect (Moravian):

To translate it to Russian... Maybe. I'm not translating all I understood, I have to feel it.

P.S.
Sure,
We all can be wrong.
