Can you help solve this?

Cantilena forms part of Adiemus II. I had thought the passage was entirely composed by Karl Jenkins, with vocalise made up by him. However, his website says that he used some "ethnic elements" in Adiemus.

Arc en Ciel's director thinks that the entire vocal part of Cantilena is a traditional song from the Ivory Coast and that the words are in Baoulé.

Does anyone know? Anyone have Karl's phone number? ;)

Ask Tim? We sang Adiemus one recently and he has contacts with South African groups, who may have contacts there?
