OT: slightly OT: language ID's?

I picked up a couple tapes in a series called Global Celebrations,
because I thought it'd be neat to get samples of music from around the
world and they were going for $3 (U.S.) each...but I can't *identify* the
languages or world-regions/nations/cultures from whence the songs came.
Help, anyone?  Even general indications of location would be neat.
