An ocarina is an egg-shaped flute with a protruding
whistle mouthpiece and several finger-holes. This type of flute can be found
in most cultures all over the world. These Ocarinas were made by folk
artists in Ecuador.
The songs are sung in the 30,000 year old Huichol language and were featured at the Smithsonian Institute's new wing opening of the Native American Museum in September 2004, continuing throughout the 3-year exhibit. The music consist of traditional songs that one day may become lost with Huichol traditions.
