Jai Ho! (Dance With Me!)
Come, come my Life, under the canopy.
Come under the blue brocade sky!
Iota by iota, I have lost my life. In faith
I've passed this night dancing on coals;
I blew away the sleep that was in my eyes;
I counted the stars 'til my finger burned.
Now with me, you dance for today,
for our day of movements.
No matter what problems may be:
Cheers! Dance! Dance!
Taste it, taste it. This night is honey!
Taste it, and keep it; it's a heart at its final limit.
You're a dark black, coal-black magic, aren't you?
Jai Ho! was written for the 2008 Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire. British director Tony Boyle asked Indian film composer A. R. Rahman to write this song for the end of the movie to include elements of Indian film tradition. While the song has little to do with the story line, it serves as a final victory dance for the protagonists. Ethan Sperry arranged this high-energy piece for mixed choir and percussion in 2008 and it features exciting dance rhythms and fast diction!
