Colombians have only a few days left to enjoy “Encanto,” the first Disney film inspired by the country. Amid the thrilling wait, Universal Music announced that all of the songs that made up the film’s soundtrack are now available, featuring voices and compositions by Carlos Vives and Sebastian Journey, among other artists. Released by Walt Disney Records and featuring original songs by Tony and Grammy Award-winning composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, and more, viewers will now be able to listen to the track listing across all digital platforms.

“Many of the rhythms are familiar to me, but the instrumentation and orchestration is different, and at times specific to Colombia. One of the funniest things is that the accordion is a central instrument of country music. I loved immersing myself in actors I didn’t know and diving deeper into actors I’ve always loved and grew up with, like Carlos Vives, with whom we were fortunate enough to work on this film. The whole process made me fall in love with Colombian music and culture and I really enjoyed being able to play in that space”. Miranda commented on the statement made by the label to the press. The music and orchestral arrangements were in charge of Germain Franco.

The song list bears the title with: ‘The Madrigal Family’; ‘A Magical Gift’; ‘Deep / in the weight’; ‘Nobody talks about Bruno’; ‘Inspiration’; ‘dos caterpillar’ (‘two caterpillars’); ‘Only You’ and ‘Columbia, My Charm’, Miranda wrote and produced eight original songs for Encanto, and Mike Elisondo co-produced them.

“I hope audiences sing these songs the way they do with so many other classic Disney movies (…). There are many positive messages about family and our relationships. I also hope that you can appreciate how diverse Colombian music is. I learned a lot about their rhythms and styles during the production process and I hope this soundtrack will be a gateway for the public to discover Colombian music.”Alisondo commented.
