This ceramic ocarina is tuned in the Hijaz, a musical mode which hearkens back to and is reminiscent of ancient Egypt and other ethnic scales.  It utilizes a simplified tuning system perfect for improvisation and feeling your way through the music. Linear fingering pattern and also capable of all the notes of the diatonic scale utilizing crossfingering.

Hijaz is a popular scale in music of the Near East, countries like Egypt, Israel, Turkey, Armenia.  It uses a combination of short intervals and extra large intervals, perfect for dancing (in fact, there is a whole genre of "belly dance" music that makes great use of this scale).
