The ocarina is an ancient flute-like wind instrument. While several variations exist, an ocarina is typified by an oval-shaped enclosed space with four to twelve finger holes and a mouth tube projecting out from the body. It is often ceramic, but many other materials, such as plastic, wood, glass and metal may also be used.

And just to complete your education, have a listen to 'Wild Thing' by The Troggs. The instrument playing the solo is an ocarina.
