Here is Noel's post on his Luck of Seven web site.

Trivia: there is a bit of Arabic and quotes from the Quran in the music. The vocals are by Malian artist Vieux Farka Toure, and they say:

بسم الله ربنا أتنا .......

"In the name of Allah, Oh our Lord, give us ...

The rest is not clear as it is heavily accented, but the closest would be a quotation from Quran 2:201

Update Sept 3, 2007: I now can make up all the words. They are:

بسم الله ربنا أتنا - الرحمن ربنا - و إليك المصير 

ًًWhich is an indirect quote from the above verses, but says:

"In the name of Allah, Oh our Lord, give us - The merciful our Lord - And to you our destiny" 



I could hardly make it ...

The accent is so Africanized that I could hardly make it. I still can't figure the rest of it, but the part I was able to decipher is correct.
