What they say :
- Latin GRAMMY® nominated singer-songwriter Yatra said: “It has always been a dream of mine to be in a Disney movie and it really touches me when it’s a Disney movie about my country and showing the best of what we have to offer which is love, family and miracles. “
- “Dos Oruguitas” marked a first for Lin-Manuel Miranda: “This is the first song I wrote – from start to finish – in Spanish,” he says. “It is about the journey of the grandparents of Mirabel, their realization that sometimes you have to let go, do the impossible.
- Diving into the music of Colombian history, Miranda said: “A lot of rhythms are familiar to me, but the instrumentation and orchestration are different and often unique to Colombia. One of the funniest things is that the accordion is so central to the music. It was really a joy to immerse myself in artists that I didn’t know and to dive deeper into those that I grew up loving, like Carlos Vives, with whom we have the chance to work on this film. This whole process was about falling in love with Colombian music and culture and performing in this space. “
