Nice to see the organetto bolognese tradition being maintained.

Thanks for the clip and the link to the sheet music.

Hi,
Forgive me, for I don't quite understand the question or joke.

I apologise. I shouldn’t have said that! It’s just that most of the clip shows him entirely from the rear.  Smile
It was meant to be a humorous “tongue in cheek “ comment. Smile

Hi, 
That's okay, I really didn't have a clue. 
Accordion is also fun and humor :-) 

But don't call his mini accordion a toy :-)

Interesting that he uses a stool to place a leg on to carry the weight of the instrument. Interesting because we have had much discussion on this forum about how to carry the weight of an accordion many times heavier!

Looks like the guy next to the double bass player is playing an ocarina.
Don't think I've seen one played in earnest before  Cool

Seen Italians playing them a few times, but never knew what they were called. 

There are a few clips on You Tube including this one:-

It would be nice to be able to play one, but I don't think I've quite got the ears for it!  Big Grin

Multichamber ocarinas are popular again.

Another design is to use a stick or slide to decrease the sound chamber, and change the tuning. Sometimes you can see this stick on keyed ocarinas:

It's a debate between multi chamber ocarinas, or using a combination of slide/stick and multiple chambers:

Anyone wanna join me? I'm starting another ocarina orchestra

The ideal birthday present for the wife, a 2 hours ocarina orchestra concert in your living room.

Crickey, I thought that ocarinas were just toys given to kids to annoy their their siblings and anyone else within earshot in much the same way rattles and drums, and squeaky toys are used.
I think I'll resist the temptation to get one Dodgy

I'm prepared to offer you the lead solo in my new ocarina orchestra !
Think twice, we'll have a lot of fun ! I'm also prepared to offer you the green owl ocarina, be quick !  Smile

I'm ambitious, I'm aiming for a Carnegie Hall concert.
Our opening piece will be the G. Rossini Ouverture to Wilhelm Tell

And last but not least, I have heard you can win a awful lot of points on your social credit system (in China) if you join an ocarina orchestra...
And so can the audience... Not attending might get them minus points on their social credit score.

Bye Bye Bye Kelis "Milkshake", adieu Beyoncé, so long gangsta rap.

Big Bro, Ocarinas, here we come, let's rock !

Nah, I think I'll pass on that one.
Now if you offered me a whiskey jar base (left handed), then I might be tempted  Undecided
