    I don't have the headphones right now, so I can't hear the song.
    But can it by any chance be the Egyptian national anthem, "Bilady, Bilady, Bilady"?
    Check the lyrics at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bilady%2C_Bilady%2C_Bilady

    1) This is NOT the Egyptian national anthem — I compared the tune (you can find it here: http://www.egycom.com/anthem.html ), and it is totally different.

    2) That said, it MAY be in Arabic and include the word bilady ("my homeland"). The music definitely sounds Arabic.

    However, I could see no Arabic script on the placards in the audience... Only Latin script. Could it be Maltese?

    Faces are an extremely interesting study as well. Some are distinctly oriental (like Arabs or Turks), some look like natives of Chechnya or Dagestan, and some could easily blend with the crowd in any European city.

    The song itself is pretty mediocre, but there is something about the way those kids perform it... sincerity, or pathos, or sincere pathos, if such a thing can exist... whatever it is, you can't help liking it.

    Listened to the song now... It does really sound something like Arabic: "Biladi, biladi, yabiladi". I can't recognize most of the other words, though.

    Well I was thinking the same thing, "hey, that band player looks Armenian!" "that boy looks turkic!" "she is totally persian!" etc. I noticed how everybody was wearing western clothes and no headscarfs. That is what made me think Turkey... There are many Armenians there

    They also use "latin" letters...

    Just FTR, "my homeland" would be watani.
    biladi means just "my country".

    I had a friend who lived here this winter. She is a daugher of Moroccan immigrants in France. So she knows arabic, and I've asked her, wispering the word in her ear. She replied quite loudly with a smile "Da, bliadi znachit strana, country". Everyone around heard that.
