One Passover Song, Many (Musical) Cultures

Check out this link from the Sound Archives of the National Library of Israel (the world largest repository of Jewish musical recordings):

http://jnul.huji.ac.il/dl/music/passover/index.html

Here you can find many renditions (12, to be exact) of the enumerative Passover song, Echad mi yode’a (Who Knows One?).

How many (musical) cultures can you detect with just one example? (And how many languages?)
