Only the underlined text represents real words - a very South Indian rendition of Hindi! The rest are percussion sounds.
Surprisingly, it seems to be popular with Western fusion groups too.
It isn't just the Americans. Here's an all-Russian performance in St Petersburg.

And here is a jugalbandi (a term that Wikipedia defines as "entwined twins', but which I prefer to think of as a "joining of voices") of the Bharatanatyam and Kuchipudi styles of dance.
