"Distant Halcandra" is the World Map theme for Halcandra from Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It was composed by Jun Ishikawa.[1]


A visit to the faraway land.

"Distant Halcandra" is a short track. It starts off with an ominous low brass note, but the tension immediately dissipates in higher registers at an F major chord. From there, two slow and reverb-heavy rising passages alternate between F and A-flat major harmonies.
