VIDEO: Disney Shares Preview of EPCOT’s “Harmonious” Soundtrack

“Harmonious” will finally debut on October 1 at EPCOT with what promises to be an incredible soundtrack. According to Disney Parks Blog, the soundtrack was produced remotely through over 100 recording sessions in nine countries and five U.S.A. states. Almost 240 musicians, artists, composers, arrangers, cultural consultants, and vocalists contributed to the show, which features new interpretations of classic Disney songs sung in more than a dozen different languages.

Award-winning Puerto Rican artist Luis Fonsi, responsible for several global hits including “Despacito,” joins Mexican singer-songwriter Joy for a rousing, pan-Latin version of songs from “Coco” and “Saludos Amigos.” A fresh and vibrant arrangement of “Dig a Little Deeper” from “The Princess and the Frog” features vocalist Bryson Camper and legendary Gospel artists Karen Clark Sheard and Kierra Sheard, and musical selections from “Mulan,” “The Jungle Book,” and “Aladdin” are highlighted by the vocal talents of Wang Liuqi, Hollie Hammel, Aditya Rao, Gaayatri Kaundinya, Jorgie Shkara, and Sanaa Marahati.

The Ndlovu Youth Choir from Johannesburg contributes a medley of favorites from “The Lion King,” performed in both English and Zulu. We also hear a duet with French pop singer Damien Sargue, belting “Out There” from Disney’s “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” and the music of Disney and Pixar’s “Brave” gets a Celtic kick from the dueling violins of Grammy and Emmy-nominated violinist Máiréad Nesbitt and platinum-selling electronic artist, violinist, and multi-talented entertainer Lindsey Stirling.

“Harmonious” will open with a medley of “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana and “Go the Distance” from Hercules performed by Danny Gokey, Elisha Garrett, and Ninet Tayeb. The music builds from there to a finale that includes artists from around the world coming together.

The soundtrack will also include a musical motif in the form of composer Pinar Toprak’s new EPCOT anthem. Everything is brought together by arranger Mark Hammond and Walt Disney Imagineers Yaron Spiwak.
