While it's true that Andalusian is classified as a dialect, we need to understand why. It has some vocabulary that differs from Spanish, but mostly it is riddled with consonant elision and consonant shifting.

The song was sung in Spanish, without any consonant shifting that I could detect. It was definitely sung with elided consonants, but nothing I haven't heard before from the campesinos of Latin America.

I'm not personally acquainted with the Andalusian dialect.
All the vocabulary I heard in the song is Spanish. There was no reason for me to believe I was hearing a dialect.

I believe there is at least one forum member that is familiar with the dialect. Perhaps you'd like to wait for his opinion.
