    We loved the Christmas and holiday music at Animal Kingdom earlier this week. Is there a place to buy the music on CD or see a list of the titles and artists so we can buy songs individually?

    Jambo, Susanne! I was also in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park last week and know exactly what you mean about the holiday music featured there. I heard the wonderful sounds of the season as we roamed about the park and it had me reminiscing about a Christmas week visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge a few years ago. The music at both the park and the Lodge is very distinctive due to its cultural influences. At this time, there is not a CD of this music, but I have an idea for you. If you subscribe to Spotify, look for the "Animal Kingdom Lodge Holiday Loop." This playlist contains many of the songs featured at the Lodge and the park. If you do not have a Spotify subscription, here is a list of the songs, their artist, and the albums on which they can be found:

    01. Zan Vévédé (O Holy Night), Angélique Kidjo, World Christmas
    02. Toyemba Noel, The Seraph Choir, Christmas in Africa
    03. Midona, Rossy, Island of Ghosts
    04. Les Anges Dans nos Campagnes (Angels...), Papa Wemba, Mino Cinelu, World Christmas
    05. Bolingo, The African Children's Choir, World Christmas: African
    06. The Sun Shines Down (On a Christmas Day), Various Artists, African Christmas: Christmas Favorites with an African Beat
    07. Joy to the World (Cameroon), African Gospel Choir, Christmas Around the World (Noëls du Monde)
    08. Fatou Yo (I am Fatou), Touré Kunda, World Playground: A Musical Adventure for Kids
    09. Siyathandaza, Holy Cross Choir, South African Gospel According to Earthworks
    10. Yote Yawezekana, Shangilia Youth Choir of Kenya, Shangilia Mtoto Wa Africa: Rejoice Child of Africa
    11. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, The Seraph Choir, Christmas in Africa
    12. Hlohonolofatsa, The Soweto Gospel Choir, African Spirit
    13. Malibongwe, Holy Cross Choir, South African Gospel According to Earthworks
    14. Wene U N'ga Yale, Orchestra Marrabenta Star De Moçambique, The Rough Guide: The Music of Africa
    15. Little Drummer Boy, Various Artists, African Christmas: Christmas Favorites with an African Beat
    16. Wasuze Otya, Samite, African Voices: Songs of Life
    17. Uma Ilanga Liyo Shona, The Soweto Gospel Choir, South African Gospel
