4th year CSE students continue the project entitled ‘Why Music is so Important in Animation?’ in order to enhance the value of music in animated movies. The main objective of this activity is to analyse the lyrics and discover the moral that songwriters wanted to transmit, why the songs are performed in a specific moment in these movies, and so on. All the songs selected have been award winners and and have been chosen for their valuable messages.
In our fifth instalment, we will talk about the song The Family Madrigal. It is a song from Disney’s animated musical film Encanto (2021).
It was written by American singer-songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda, and sung almost entirely by American actress Stephanie Beatriz, featuring a small refrain by American actress Olga Merediz.
The Family Madrigal is the opening number of Encanto, and it is performed by the protagonists Mirabel and Alma Madrigal, respectively, in the film.
Mirabel introduces her multigenerational Colombian family and their magical powers to the audience with the song.
Let’s listen to what the students say about the importance of this song and the moment in which it is used in the movie.
