Illuminations » Theme Park Music












 

















    

Arguably one of the most enchanting playlists at Walt Disney World, the Epcot Illuminations music runs the gamut from the Native American chants of Wimme, to the Middle Eastern melodies of Omar Faruk Tekbelik, to the rhythymic bagpipes of Hevia.  Coupled with flaming torches around the World Showcase Lagoon, the preshow music does a great deal to build anticipation for what is to come.  The music ends with a brief narration by Jim Cummings (voice of Winnie the Pooh).

The Illuminations Preshow Music has done a great deal to introduce us to some fantastic world music.  We encourage you to explore some deeper cuts from the albums listed below.  Also, if you are a fan of Nordic and Celtic music, be sure to check out Vasen from the Epcot Illuminations Pre-2005 preshow music.
