"El Mundo Es Mi Familia" is a Huapango-inspired song in DisneyPixar's 2017 animated feature film, Coco.


Miguel sings the song in a bid to capture the attention of Ernesto de la Cruz.[1] He was eventually singing the song while running after Ernesto, though the song was interrupted when Miguel fell into the pool.


Señoras y señores
Buenas tardes, buenas noches
Buenas noches, buenas tardes
Señoritas y señores

To be here with you tonight
Brings me joy, que alegría
For this music is my language and the world es mi familia

For this music is my language and the world es mi familia (x2)

  • Although the song features Ernesto singing with Miguel in the film's soundtrack, Ernesto does not actually sing with Miguel in the film; in the film, Ernesto is singing it in one of his films in the background.
  • As shown in a flashback, the song was seen in Héctor's songbook, confirming he was the one who wrote it.
