A Dervishs’ Song from the Movie Jodhaa Akbar

I got the link to a song of Khwaja Mere Khwaja, a Dervishs’ Dance from the beautiful Indian movie Jodhaa Akbar, a scene of mystical rapture. I saw this great film at a seminar with Sri Kumar in India 2009 and later also at home. The film is an Indian epic historical drama film released in 2008. It centers around the romance between the Muslim Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great and the Hindu Rajput Princess Jodhabai who becomes his wife. The video of the song shows the scene where a group of Dervishs is performing a song to the Emperor, who at the end joins their dance and is carried away into a state of ecstasy.

    Thanks for sharing this. One of the best compositions by a musician (ARR) I almost consider a composer by day and a Sufi saint by night. Not sure if you came across this song called Kandisa ( – an ancient Aramaic prayer set to a Indo-fusion tune by a band called Indian Ocean.
