The Encanto Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, featuring eight original songs by Tony®- and Grammy®-winning songwriter/composer Lin-Manuel Miranda ("Hamilton," "Moana") with an original score by award-winning composer Germaine Franco ("Dora and the Lost City of Gold," "Little," "Tag"). Sebastián Yatra performs the original song “Dos Oruguitas” in Spanish in the film and “Two Oruguitas,” the English-language version of the song, in the end, credits. Previously-announced artist Carlos Vives performs “Colombia, Mi Encanto.” The physical soundtrack will be available on Dec. 17. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Encanto opens in theatres on November 24, 2021. On diving into the music of the Colombian-set story, Miranda said, "A lot of the rhythms are familiar to me, but the instrumentation and orchestration are different and often unique to Colombia. One of the most fun things is that the accordion is so central to the music. It was really a joy immersing myself in artists I didn't know and doing deeper dives into those I've grown up loving-like Carlos Vives, who we're lucky enough to work with on this movie. This entire process has been about falling in love with Colombian music and culture and getting to play in that space." Award-winning composer Germaine Franco is behind the original score for "Encanto." Franco worked closely with filmmakers and Miranda to create a signature score that complemented the songs and story.
