Bolero of Fire

Sheik teaching Link the "Bolero of Fire"

The "Bolero of Fire" is a song from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. When played, this teleportation song transports Link to the Triforce Pedestal in the center of the Death Mountain Crater, near the entrance to the Fire Temple. This is the only way with which Link can get to the central area of the crater as a child, where a patch of Soft Soil (and by extent, a Gold Skulltula) can be found.

Link can play the "Bolero of Fire" on the Ocarina of Time by playing Down-C, A, Down-C, A, Right-C, Down-C, Right-C, Down-C. In the 3DS remake of Ocarina of Time, the notes can be played with R, L, R, L, Y, R, Y, R. The actual pitches of the notes translate as follows: F, D, F, D, A, F, A, F.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

On a quest to awaken the Sage of Fire, Link befriends Link of the Gorons, who allows him to pass through to the Death Mountain Crater, wherein lies the Fire Temple. As Link crosses a broken bridge with the help of the Hookshot, Sheik appears. Sheik teaches Link the "Bolero of Fire" on his harp, that Link may return to the crater easier in the future, before disappearing.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

In Termina Field, near Snowhead, a music bar engraved in stone depicts multiple warp songs from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, including "Bolero of Fire". When played correctly on the Ocarina, Link is awarded Rupees.

A bolero is a name given to certain slow, romantic Latin music and its associated dance and song. There are also Spanish and Cuban forms, which are both significant and have separate origins. Darunia, Sage of Fire, loves music he can dance to. He expresses this when Young Link plays Saria's Song for him.
