Hakuna Matata - Piano Notes & Tutorial

Another popular song from the Kids’ Movies, here I present to you the Hakuna Matata Piano Notes. This is from The Lion King, another favourite animated movie of the children (And secretly, mine as well! 😉 ) I am sure all the 90’s kids would be loving this movie just like me, right? The friendship of cartoon characters Simba, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa is something to look for, and that is what makes this number loving.

This song was a craze among children when it was released. And even today, kids love dancing to this Disney’s super amazing number of Lion King. “Hakuna Matata” simply means “No Worries”, and hence people had started using this phrase as a slang in their normal daily life as well.
