My October Ocarina

A L O H A !   This is a short (2 mins) audio of myself 
playing a tiny ocarina! 
Hope you enjoy it as we swim
 through some Waikiki photos -

So, are you climbing trees now to get these wonderful photos? I can see you perched with your bird-friends and your ocarina.

I am presently standing next to some pretty interesting stuff so perhaps I can try getting my camera to capture it.

Kate is so right, and Ansel has proved it many times. Cloudia, thank you for the lovely ocarina tune. Is it easy to learn, I'd sure enjoy giving it a try. Oh, not to forget stupendous photos too! I hope the little one wiped away her tears and smiled!

Back when I was a kid, one of the biggest games during the time of my late elem and early middle school was Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Where you use an ocarina to play songs which cause some magic functions.

It wasn't for that game, I doubt many in my generation would even know that an ocarina is an instrument.

Thanks for these interesting comments :-)

Beautiful music, Cloudia! You rock!

Beautiful haunting music - and glorious photos. Thank you.

Merlesworld said...

I'm not good with the camera but I do turn up with it in my bag and have a go and every now and again I get a good photo, I thing it's good luck more than skill.
I like the music it's a bit magical.

Hi Cloudia, I absolutely love the music you are sharing today!!! It is so soothing. Thanks so much for your comment on my blog, I am so glad you like rats. I used to have one as a pet and they are very intelligent and social. :)


Lovely clip, 'I Cloudia'!:) The Richardson quote is terrific...

That was a beautiful haunting melody! First time I heard the Ocarina and I loved it!
