The "Tune of Echoes,"[1] also known as the "Echo Tune,"[2] is a Song in Oracle of Ages.

Location and Uses[]

It is the first tune that Link learns to play on the Harp of Ages. Nayru's apparition teaches it to him when he takes the harp from her house.[3]

The "Tune of Echoes" awakens the many Time Portals scattered across the land of Labrynna.[4] He must step into an open Time Portal to travel to the opposite age.
