by Lin-Manuel Miranda
“Dos Oruguitas” (meaning “two little caterpillars”) is a beautiful song written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and performed by Sebastián Yatra. It tells the story of two caterpillars who are in love and try to stay together despite challenging times; they are growing to become butterflies and find their own future. It is a song about love, change and hope.
“Dos Oruguitas” is one of the songs featured in Disney’s 2021 animated film, Encanto, covering one of the most emotional scenes of the movie. Since its release in the end of 2021 it has immediately become an international favorite. No wonder why it is one of the fifteen songs that will advance in the Original Song category for the 94th Academy Awards in 2022.
