This is a remix of "Lost Woods" from The Legend of Zelda. It's definitely not uncharted territory, but I've had this style in mind for ages now and just had to get it out. It uses a lot of instruments from around the world, featuring primarily African instruments (Kora, Ngoni, Bolon, Fula Flute, Kalimba, Calabash) and some Andean instruments (Pan Flute, Charango, Ocarina). An Irish Low Whistle doubles the melody at parts.
Original: "Lost Woods (Saria's Song)" by Koji Kondo, from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Made with Logic Pro X. Samples running through Native-Instruments Kontakt 6, Best Service ENGINE, and Orchestral Tool's SINE Player.
The background photo is made by UndyingNephalim, featuring his re-design of Saria for his Zelda-inspired RTS game mod, Hyrule Conquest (based on the free game 0 AD).
