Hello there, Universe! It is Monday, and that means it’s time for another wonderful Music Monday! Today we will be focusing on musical instruments in (and out of) the Zelda games.

The soundtrack in the Zelda series is a huge part of the experience, but musical instruments as items in the game are just as important to the series. Everything from the Spirit Flute to the Ocarina of Time: music is magic in Hyrule!

There is an amazing ocarina musician on YouTube known as Heathersocarina who uploads videos of herself playing various songs on the ocarina! A few weeks ago, I covered the 25th anniversary’s rendition of “Ballad of the Goddess,” and to see that song played on the ocarina, hit the jump!

I never get tired of watching those videos! It’s so fun and entertaining to see Zelda music played like that!

In Skyward Sword a wonderful instrument plays a big role in the game, and that instrument is the harp. This may not be the harp used by Zelda in the game, but this is a great video, and a great song played on the harp!
