Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Mini clay painted ocarina
These mini ocarinas from Peru are made from fired clay and feature beautiful, hand-painted decorations in a traditional style. Ocarinas produce a mellow, recorder-like sound and are lots of fun to learn. The attached string sling makes these perfect for young players in the classroom.
Ocarinas are among the oldest instruments known to man and were thought to originally be played by the Aztecs and Mayans. Tuned diatonically, this 6-hole ocarina features 4 holes on the top and two on the bottom and is played with the ring finger, index finger and thumb of both hands.
These fired clay Ocarinas from Peru are sourced using Fair trade principles. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.
