Embrace the World emerged victorious from the original 264 outstanding entries. The work is a joint effort between internationally-renowned techno producer Howie B. (who has worked with the likes of Björk, New Order, U2, Tricky, Soul II Soul, and other top groups and musicians) and Taiwan’s famed music producer Ada Su, according to the Taipei Universiade Organizing Committee.

The fast tempo of traditional indigenous music, with Rumba rhythm and Latino instruments mixed with techno elements create a powerful feeling of the song, the committee said.  

Embrace the World has a brisk tempo and a catchy melody that is easy to remember, even after having been listened to just once, according to the committee.

The song has been labeled “dance music” in the hope that listeners will begin to tap their feet and dance without thinking when they hear it, and will become infected by the passion of the Universiade, the committee added.  

The lyrics of Embrace the World:

(排灣族語)(the Paiwan language) i u giugi senasena i
Let's sing and dance together

張開你的雙手 讓我擁抱你
Open your arms and let me embrace you
盡情享受遠方 溫暖的友誼
To share the warmth of friendship
圍著圈圈跳舞 拉近了距離
Let's make a circle and dance! No more distance between you and me
讓我們都看見 善良與美麗
We can gaze deeply upon kindness and beauty

你是永恆太陽 高掛天際
You are my eternal sun, lighting my horizon
滿腔熱情藏在 深邃眼睛裡
With passion bursting from your eyes
像自由鳥兒 帶著勇氣
Like a glorious bird, roaming free

翱翔藍天綠地
Taking flight above verdant mountains, soaring through azure skies.

感受彼此氣息 相聚在一起
Let's feel each other's presence, together at last
我沸騰的血液 也跟著旋律
My blood rushes to the melody
拉近你我距離 不要再猶豫
Come closer, do not hesitate
大聲告訴世界 你來自哪裡
To tell the world where you are from!

你是永恆太陽 高掛天際
You are my eternal sun, lighting my horizon
滿腔熱情藏在 深邃眼睛裡
With passion bursting from your eyes
像自由鳥兒 帶著勇氣
Like a glorious bird, roaming free
翱翔藍天綠地
Taking flight above verdant mountains, soaring through azure skies.
