Same Song Around The Globe

So i was listening to one of the mixtapes from Karriem Diggins called Persian funk and i bumped on a very intriguing song from an Iranian artists - Marjan

why is it intriguing? - because this melody seems to pop up in various parts of the globe

it's a bolivian cumbia standard called Vuelve a mi lado or Vuela Mariposa

plus there is a version from indian composer duo - Kalyanji Anandji- from the film Haadsa

... it all leads us to the question - wtf?  who was the first one? who inspired who? are there more versions of this song around the globe?


Soooo i'm getting back to the subject....
Again thanx to Karriem Diggins we have two more cases of THE SONG

This time from from Ajda Pekkan - the turkish diva 

and the french version from the same artist

and again from Turkey, from a 'new generation' artist GokSeL

... Karim also points out that the first one to record the song was Marjan from Iran. I had a hunch about that one...

So i think that the question about the origin is closed.
But how did it go to Sudamerica? Through the french version maybe...
