Moana is the story of a young girl who yearns to know more about herself and her ancestry. Her father is the village chief and she feels drawn to the ocean that surrounds their beautiful, tropical Polynesian island of Motunui. The story tells of her adventures, discoveries, and experiences that teach her about herself and others.
There are a total of 40 tracks on this soundtrack, which includes both the songs and the score. The entire soundtrack is about 75 minutes long and the songs range in length, the shortest song being 30 seconds long to the longest at 5 minutes and 46 seconds. 14 of the tracks are songs with lyrics while the remaining 26 tracks make up the score. The main voices in the music are Moana (voiced by Auli'i Cravalho) and Maui (voiced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson). The score is composed by Mark Mancina.
If you purchase the audio CD version, the lyrics are listed inside the booklet, along with the character who sings them. There are even the lyrics for the Polynesian languages sung on the soundtrack. There is also a list to credit all of the orchestra members who played the music for the score.
Our whole family loves this soundtrack and we listen to it multiple times a day! I feel the soundtrack greatly reflects the tone of the movie. Because it's set in Polynesia, the music has a tropical feel to it and it's beautiful. Some of the songs are energetic and full of adventure whereas others reflect the darker tone when Moana and Maui are faced with their main task. Auli'i Cravalho has a beautiful voice and does an amazing job with all of the songs, my favorite being "How Far I'll Go," which can be heard multiple times on the soundtrack. We love the songs with lyrics and find they are easy to sing along with. The score is a lot of fun too and we enjoy figuring out which part of the movie the current song is from. Listening to this soundtrack makes us want to watch the movie every time we listen to it!
If you've seen the movie and enjoy the music, I highly recommend purchasing this soundtrack. Our whole family loves it and I feel it's a good way to get my kids interested in music. There is a lot of music on this soundtrack and we've listened to it all many times already. I'm glad we bought this because it has been a wonderful purchase for us and well-worth the money we spent on it!
The songs are simply amazing. I love the rhythms, the harmonizing, all of the songs that had vocals were just so incredibly well done, they raise goosebumps when I hear them.
And unlike so many other soundtracks out there that have all the rest of the score that is usually boring or annoying, this one is enjoyable through the whole thing.
You can almost feel the ocean spray on your face when you crank this up. This has become my favorite Disney soundtrack now.
The songs themselves are all exceptionally catchy, and we both feel that the lyrics are much better than some of Disney's recent musicals. The vocal performances are top-quality across the board, especially the voice actress who plays Moana. Her performances are emotional, powerful, and relay so much character development per song. Dwayne Johnson as Maui was also a very pleasant surprise as I did not think of him as a singer. The music and orchestraiton was likewise top-notch and I found myself humming the songs for days after listening.
The digital copy amazon added to my account was also a very pleasant bonus.
