The next two are by British-Indian hip-hop artist Panjabi MC. Fun dance music.
(Beware of the Boys)
This is another song by A H Rahman from the movie Dil Se. Impressive video; the actors are singing and dancing on a moving train.
by A R Rahman
Translation of Chaiyya Chaiyya.
The composer describes it as a Sufi song. It reminds me of Rumi’s poetry.
He whose head is in the shadow of love
will have heaven beneath his feet.
Whose head is in the shadow of love…
Walk in the shadow.
Walk in heaven, walk in the shadow.
There’s a friend who is like a sweet fragrance,
whose words are like poetry,
who is my evening, my night, my existence.
That friend is my beloved!
Sometimes (my beloved) flirts like a flower,
so fragrantly that you may see her scent.
Having made it into a charm, I will wear it.
She shall be obtained as a miracle is obtained.
She is my song, my declaration of faith
My song… my declaration of faith…
She moves like the dew.
She walks with the garden of heaven beneath her feet,
sometimes through the branches, sometimes amidst the leaves.
I shall search the wind for her trail!
I trade in her beauty.
Fickle, she flits shamelessly from sun to shade.
She changes her bright colors;
I negotiate that as well.
