Sometimes I come down with the Monday blues, and I use music to help me get out of a funk. There’s nothing more relaxing than Patti Rudisill‘s cover of Hateno Village, featuring Doug Perry. Hateno Village is one of my favorite locations in Breath of the Wild, and when I found this cover I knew I needed to share it with all of you.

Medli’s Melodies is a series in which we choose our favorite songs from The Legend of Zelda franchise, or highlight a special piece of music from the perpetually creative fan community. Music has always such been such an integral component of Zelda games, and we’re here to celebrate that every week!

Hateno Village’s music really stands out to me in the game, and Patti Rudisill arranged a piece that covers the original perfectly. With the smooth motions of the violin mixed with the soothing sound of the marimba, this cover knocks it out of the park and captured my heart and attention. I hope you all enjoy this musical piece as much as I did, and that it brings you back to the calming environment of Hateno Village.
