Biography

Lebo Morake, commonly known as Lebo M, is a South African composer most famous for arranging and performing music for the Lion King movies and stage productions. He was recommended to Disney by Hans Zimmer, the score composer of The Lion King, and was later permitted to form and conduct the African choir that sang for the movies.

His voice is the first voice heard in the beginning of the film, singing the now famous chant (often considered synonymous with the film’s image in popular culture) over the opening sequence. He also contributed to the sequel to the film’s soundtrack, Rhythm of the Pride Lands, and the film’s direct-to-video sequel The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride.
