"Plains Stage"[Japanese title] is a stage theme from Kirby's Dream Land 3. This theme was composed by Jun Ishikawa, and has also been remixed in Kirby Star Allies.

Composition[edit]

"Plains Stage" has a somewhat slow tempo, but has a fast drumbeat. Its composition is characteristic of ragga jungle, which combines elements of reggae (such as the laidback tempo and syncopated rhythms) and jungle music (such as the fast breaks and heavy bass). This theme is primarily in the key of C.
