    I get a very strong Russian vibe from that excerpt.... all the other guesses, Romanian/Latin, Slavic, and I don't know what else...are plausible.... it has an interesting sound but I guess it owes to the narrator's voice as well...

    Is Gheg Albanian different to standard Albanian?

    Easily recognizable as Albanian, but mind you, the reader must be a rather high-profile actor, or writer. Impressive voice.
    The reader is a recognized Albanian actor: Reshat Arbana. He worked as an actor at the national theatre. Very impressive voice indeed, there's something very moving about it and it fits perfectly.

    Standard Albanian is more based on the Tosk dialect than Gheg. Standard Albanian is different from either Tosk and Gheg though.

    It's a very unique language but one can sense the slavic/latin influence. Doesn't sound turkish to my ears.

    Can someone also post examples of Tosk language?

    Are Tosk and Gheg very different dialects and how so? Do you have problems understanding each other? I'm curious

    Tosk is very rhythmic and "heavy" words are spoken correctly and fully

    Gheg is more melodic, vowels and consonants are cut some words are even different. Many vowels are long drawn in a hillbilly american way.
