On a peaceful tropical island, Ontama roam free. These gentle sound spirits, when properly conducted, offer the people of the land a beautiful and enchanting symphony. Wishing to rob the inhabitants of this joy, a netherworldly ne'er-do-well begins to control the natives, forcing them to capture the Ontama. Two aspiring “Ontamaestros”, Beat and Rest, discover the plot and decide to foil the fiend's scheme by challenging the villagers under his control in order to release the trapped Ontama!
