Disney takes us back to the sea for an adventure about home, tradition and growing up. Composed by the Samoan musician Opetaia Foa’i, Mark Mancina (who helped put a South African spin on Elton John’s songs for The Lion King), and Hamilton mastermind Lin-Manuel Miranda, the movie’s soundtrack is an uplifting mix of Disney storytelling and traditional Oceanian music, sung both in English and the Polynesian language of Tokelau. It also features beautiful performances by Hawaiian actress Auli’i Cravalho, who voices the film’s heroine, Moana.
DISNEY DID US PROUD!
Saw the movie and I am so happy that Disney did their research! The songs are awesome! Lin-Manuel is amazing! But I think we need to give great credit to Opetaia and the rest of Te Vaka for giving this album life and breathing Polynesia into it. I wouldn't have it any other way. Auli'i has an incredible voice. The Rock, Jemaine, Nicole.... all voices recognizeable to Polynesia. My only gripe is that I wish the songs didn't end! I am overjoyed at the success of this film and the music literally made my heart flutter and well up inside!
doesn't really have the same effect unless you watch the movie
This is going to great! Love the main song!
