We know the Ocarina from popular figures like Link from the Zelda video game series. We also know it from Totoro the Asian anime movie. The Ocarina is a wonderful instrument to play and has a wonderful sound. If you have a 12 hole Ocarina you can play any note and aren't stuck in one key, this gives you the freedom to play many songs and with your friends no matter what they are playing.
This instrument in one form or another has been around for over 10,000 years. At times it was called the potato instrument because it can be made by carving out a potato. (that version doesn't last much past supper time, so make sure you aren't planning to jam with your friends after your meal.) It has a wonderful sound is easy to play.
