Bolero of Fire
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 Triforce Warp in Death Mountain Crater, right before the entrance to the Fire Temple.

Cadence of Hyrule
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."
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.
