The Ocarina is a very old family of instruments, with the oldest ocarina ever found being approximately 12,000 years old. The ocarina belongs to the flute family. It is generally oval in shape with four to twelve holes for the fingers, but there are some variations.
Unlike many flutes, ocarinas do not rely on tube length to produce a specific tone. Instead, the sound depends on the ratio of the total area, the drilled holes and the total cubic volume of the instrument. This means that, unlike a flute, the sound is created by the resonance of the entire cavity.
