We Don’t Talk About Bruno – How to Play on the Glockenspiel / Xylophone

By Lin-Manuel Miranda

This song from Disney ‘s 2021 film Encanto was a great success, as it became the best-selling Disney song since Frozen’s “Let it go” and the first Disney song to hit the Number 1 spot in the UK Charts. The composer is Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The song features members of the Madrigal family (Pepa, Felix, Dolores, Camilo, Isabela, Mirabel, Abuela Alma). The family explains to young Mirabel why she should not mention Bruno’s name. The music draws on elements from both latin and pop / hip hop music. It’s not performed by a single singer, but the song is rather a dialogue between the leading characters.

In the end, they all sing-along together in a polyphonic climax – thus confirming the name of the family: Madrigal, which as a musical term that refers to a polyphonic song that flourished during the Renaissance.
