One thing in common with everyone I’ve talked to who has seen the new “Rivers of Light” water pageant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is the love of the original score that was written for the show. I still find myself humming lines from “We are one,” the show’s main song.
Disney has released a video that features the people behind the score and shots of the recording session in London:
Among the instruments featured are some global sounds from the likes of a duduk, bansuri flute, erhu, Chinese Opera drums, and Taiko Drums.
While the soundtrack has been spotted for sale in the parks, I don’t let see it on Amazon or iTunes, but will update this story when it is.
We were able to live-stream the premiere performance of the show on Feb 17th, but you can also just watch our highlights of the show below:
We hope you’ll visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom soon and experience the magic and wonder that is “Rivers of Light” for yourself soon.
