Carben and Link playing the Song of Restoration

The "Songs of Restoration",[1] also known as Lokomo Songs,[2] are songs in Spirit Tracks. They are duets that Link plays with another member of the Lokomo tribe.

Learning Location and Uses

The Lokomo plays his or her part first using their own sacred instrument, while Link then follows by playing the Spirit Flute. At the end of the duet, both Link and the Lokomo play at the same time, thus generating energy that powers the Spirit Tracks.[3] Throughout his journey, Link must visit the five Lokomos who live in their respective sanctuaries scattered across the five realms in order to play the duets with them and restore the Spirit Tracks that lead to each realm's temple.[4]

Link is first given a chance to practice the melody with said Lokomo before doing their performance. Once the young hero is done practicing, he must put the Spirit Flute down to then try the real performance. As the two are playing, Link must play his notes with the tempo given by the metronome in order to play the song correctly; thus, having a sense of rhythm is essential when playing Lokomo Songs.

Unlike the other songs learned on the Spirit Flute, the Lokomo Songs do not stay in Link's inventory and can only be played once with its respective Lokomo throughout the whole game.

Rael Duet

Zelda Duet

In the final battle against Malladus, after Princess Zelda sings a duet with Link, all five Lokomos join in with their respective instruments to form a full orchestrated version of the piece. This melody reveals a weak spot in Malladus's back.


  • The Zelda Duet can be heard in the opening theme of the game. It is a variation of the Spirit Flute theme heard during the game's introduction screen.
  • In the Spanish version of the game, each Lokomo Song is named depending on the realm Link is in. For example, the Lokomo Song Link learns from Gage is known as the "Melody of the Forests" (Melodía de los Bosques), and the one learned from Steem is referred to as the "Melody of the Snow" (Melodía de las Nieves). As such, the term "Lokomo Song" is never mentioned in the game.
