Song

The "Bolero of Fire" is a warping song in Ocarina of Time.

Location and Uses

Ocarina of Time

The "Bolero of Fire" is taught to Link as an adult by Sheik in Death Mountain Crater after the hero receives the Goron Tunic from Darunia's son and enters the crater. By using the Ocarina of Time, the melody allows Link to warp to the Death Mountain Crater, right before the entrance to the Fire Temple.

Majora's Mask

In Majora's Mask, the "Bolero of Fire"'s notes sometimes appear on a wall in the northern part of Termina Field, where Link can play a song for Rupees.

Other Appearances

Hyrule Warriors

In Hyrule Warriors, Sheik can play the Bolero of Fire to summon a molten rock with her Harp Weapon.

Music Theory

The "Bolero of Fire" is a short, 6-bar piece in triple time. Harmonically, the piece is rooted in D minor and follows a very basic harmonic progression (i - ii° - i - ii° - V7 - I). The piece consists of 2-bar phrase lengths in the standard bolero style. The accompanying parts to Link's Ocarina are the famous snare drum excerpt from Maurice Ravel's "Boléro." [1]

Nomenclature

Bolero is a name given to certain slow-tempo Latin music and its associated dance and songs. There are Spanish and Cuban forms, which are both significant and both of which have separate origins.
