Actually you can power EL wire with an arduino, using a relay too if you want to turn it off or even adjust the brightness slightly however adjusting the brightness with a relay between 10ms and 28ms seems to be the lowest audible click in the relay.
All you will need is a 3/5vdc to 12vdc step-up module and a 12vdc to AC inverter.
Once you have the 3/5to12vdc step-up inverter powered off the arduino's 3v and gnd pins you can then connect the 12vdc on the module to the dc to ac inverter and connect your inverter to the EL wire. I've tried this and it works, I even powered EL wire from USB using an digispark(digistump). Works pretty well too :)
