Jai Ho was written for the 2008 Oscar winning film Slumdog Millionaire.  While this is a British movie, director Tony Boyle wanted to acknowledge Indian tradition.  He asked A.R. Rahman to write a song in the style of his music for the Indian cinema to be choreographed and performed during the ending credits.  The resulting piece is a victory dance capturing the essence of the movie’s story.

A separate percussion part and pronunciation CD are available from the publisher.  The piece is recorded on CD-09.
