Not too long ago, my son and I were at a fair and he pointed to an object displayed at the Songbird Stand.
“Mom can I keep it,” he begged? It was a Baby Dragon Tooth Ocarina in G.
I’m no stranger to ocarinas. You don’t want to pick up some stray model. Who knows what you’re getting? But I was surprised with this 6-hole Baby Dragon Tooth, a hybrid of the larger 12-hole Dragon Tooth in C. What I really liked was the way the Baby Dragon felt in my hand and hearing it’s exceptional tone quality.
“Mom, can we keep it?” He egged me on?
“Well, only if you promise to take care of it.”
Now he takes it everywhere and plays all the tunes found in the enclosed Songbook/tutorial. He’s happy, and so am I.
The Key of G is known to convey the feeling of gratitude, and every gentle and peaceful emotion of the heart.
A songsheet/tutorial is included, which teaches scales and several songs:
Theme from Star Wars
The Pink Panther
On Top of Ol Smokey
My Country 'tis of Thee
Skip to My Lou
Doe a Deer
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
* What is Straw Fire?
Straw fire is when an already kiln-fired ocarina is put inside a fire-proof container and fired again with combustable straw. The smoke from the fire makes organic designs and rich woodsy color on the surface of the ocarina. The ocarina is then polished with an organic lacquer which comes from certain trees. Camphor oil is used to thin the lacquer. There are a very small number of individuals who have reported allergic reactions to the Straw Fired ocarinas. If you think you may be allergic to lacquer, or camphor oil, please choose a different ocarina.
