Yeah, it is Gypsy devils. I knew that without Google. But Slovak is a possibility. Thanks.

I do not know if Silvia Šarközi is Slovak or Romani, but I found a passage in an interview with her in Pravda that the group plays Roma music;
Quote:
Spoločne sme rozmýšľali, padali rôzne návrhy. Dnes, keď sa názov ujal, každý tvrdí, že to bol jeho nápad, o čom vedieme večné hádky. Chceli sme, aby bolo jasné, že hráme rómsku hudbu, a diabli poukazujú na zručnosť, virtuozitu našich hudobníkov.

Google translation:
Together we were thinking, various proposals fell. Today when the name took, everyone says it was his idea of what we are in perpetual quarrels. We wanted to make it clear that we play Roma music, devils and point to skill, virtuosity of our musicians.

Found at seventh paragraph below first Youtube video here: Silvia ?arköziová: Cigánska hudba je univerzálna - Hudba - Kultúra - Pravda.sk
So, it may be safe to assume that the song is in romani; But, which one? The original Romani where from Northern India and they migrated towards Eastern Europe and settled into ten maybe eleven different dialects.

I would lean towards the song being performed in Slavic romani. If you look through their web site: Gypsy Devils, The Slovak/Slovakian influence is very strong.

Thanks Anak for the analysis. But I conclude that we still do not know what this language is.

I agree, there is a way to contact their manager perhaps s/he would be gracious enough to answer your question. Gypsy Devils - Contact informations
