In 2015, Elika Mahony lovingly released “Rejoice with Exceeding Gladness”, a free downloadable song dedicated to the Festival of Ridvan. The song was a musical gift and when it was originally released, Elika generously shared the song in six different languages. This year, she has released the song in an addition five languages! The total languages include: English, Swahili, German, Chinese, French, Italian, Spanish, Arabic, Japanese, Swedish, and Portuguese! Some of the talented musicians involved include Sonbol Taefi, Eric Harper, Angela Owens and Sofie Wensbo. Elika has also made an instrumental version of her song available so that you can sing it in any language. The songs can be downloaded or streamed from Elika’s website.
The quotation used in the song is:
“Rejoice with exceeding gladness, O people of Baha, as ye call to remembrance the Day of supreme felicity…”
She has also made a video of the song in English which you can watch on her YouTube channel.
