Usage Information

The Lion King: Original Broadway Cast Recording is the official soundtrack for the stage adaption of The Lion King. It was released on November 13, 1997.

Information

Released in 1997 by The Walt Disney Company, this soundtrack features a recording of the songs heard in the stage musical, sung by the original cast members. Some of the tracks were composed by South African composer Lebo M, as they were inspired by the tracks from Rhythm of the Pride Lands, which focused primarily on the African influences of the film's original music, with most songs being sung either partially or entirely in various African languages, such as Swahili. Some songs (such as "Rafiki Mourns") were partly written and sung by African Singer Tsidii Le Loka.
