The ocarina is an ancient flute-like wind instrument[1] While
several variations exist, an ocarina is typified by an oval-shaped enclosed space with four to twelve finger holes and a mouth tube projecting out from the body. It is often ceramic.
The ocarina is a very old family of instruments, believed to
date back some 12,000 years.[2] Ocarina-type instruments have
been of particular importance in Chinese and Mesoamerican
cultures. For the Chinese, the instrument played an important
role in their long history of song and dance. The ocarina has
similar features to the Xun, another important Chinese
instrument. [3] Different expeditions to Mesoamerica, including
the one conducted by Cortes, resulted in the introduction of the
ocarina to the courts of Europe. Both the Mayans and Aztecs had
produced versions of the ocarina, but it was the Aztecs who
brought the song and dance that accompanied the ocarina to
Europe. The ocarina went on to become popular in European
communities as a toy instrument.
