TwoBreaths, a musical duo consisting of twins Dragomira and Soryane, have composed a unique cover to Dragon Roost Island’s theme. The score is done completely on the harp played by Dragomira. This piece is a wonderful way to spend those dark winter nights curled up with some hot cocoa. So grab your favorite pillow, find a comfy chair, and hit the jump to take a listen to this peaceful melody.

The Great Fairy’s Fountain theme has been a part of the Zelda series since 1991, and Zelda fans have been covering the song with all sorts of instruments ever since. One very impressive cover was recently done by professional Harpist, Amy Turk. She fell in love with the Zelda series during her teenage years and has since transcribed a number of Ocarina of Time songs for the harp. Her solo arrangement of the Great Fairy’s Fountain was nearly ten years…

Hello readers! Brian here with the fifteenth edition of “The Best and Worst of Zelda.” This week we’ll be continuing where we left off last week! Don’t forget to comment your ideas for future topics below! Musical instruments have become not only helpful items, but thematic staples in the plot of a Zeelda game. This, I believe, begins in Ocarina of Time and carries through many future games in the series. As we had made it through every game up…

Nintendo has released a new video to show off  a sample of A Link Between World‘s music. The video reveals three separate musical tracks, including theme songs for new characters like Hilda, Ravio and Yuga. Naturally, if you want a sneak peak at the upcoming 3DS game’s musical soundtrack, you’ll have to continue reading after the jump.

Hello readers! Brian here with the sixth edition of “The Best and Worst of Zelda.” This topic comes from a reader by the name of K2L, so much thanks to him! Remember to leave your ideas for next week in the comments below. Time travel is an extremely prominent theme in the Zelda series. Ever since Ocarina of Time, where it’s importance to the plot is made obvious rather early on, the idea of traveling to a different era has…

One cannot underestimate the importance of music in games. Music helps shape environments, enhances emotions and atmosphere, and provides welcome relief to sections of games which would be otherwise ultimately meaningless without it. The entire tone and feel of a game can be changed through the music, as can the perceptions of the elements of the game itself. Music can be seen as just as an integral part of experiencing a game as the gameplay, characters and plot, so it’s…

Zelda fans are awesome. You’d be hard-pressed to find a video game series which has more dedicated and faithful fan following like the Legend of Zelda does. Probably one of the best places to see the accumulation of all this love for Zelda is Etsy, where people display and sell a large variety of items. Despite the fact that a lot of these items are handmade, there are some users who are capable of producing very high quality and professional…

Welcome back Zelda Dungeoners! It’s Monday, which means it is time for our second edition of Flute Boy’s Meadow! Last week we brought you an ocarina player who has accumulated a huge following on YouTube, David “DocJazz” Ramos. For this week’s music feature, I decided to give you guys a look at a newer artist whose covers only reached YouTube earlier this year: the lovely Canadian harp player Samantha Ballard. Make the jump to see her beautiful work!

Cover videos for songs from Zelda can be found all over YouTube. Occasionally, though, you stumble across a few that really catch your ears. A video recently posted by spencersocarinas on YouTube is one such video. This particular cover is a duet performed on both a harp and an ocarina. Not only does it sound enchanting but it is also pleasing on the eyes. The beautiful forest surroundings make perfect sense considering the song that is being played. Take the…

Hey there guys! Got a nice sizable mailbag this time. Run time is a little longer than usual, going a little over 11 minutes, but there’s a lot of great questions this time. 13 questions with some nice variety and a little emphasis on Skyward Sword and Majora’s Mask (yay, my two favorite games), but there’s a lot of broad questions too, and a little hilarity at the beginning, if I do say so myself! 13 questions in all. Enjoy!…
