Ozone, Dragostea din tei, a Romanian song which was so popular during my university years that I could not withhold myself in not sharing it with you. I found the English version and I hope you will enjoy the upbeat!



For the instrument, ocarina, the umbrella term for an extremely popular vessel flute usually made of terracotta; all-in-one large, elongated egg-shape with flattened tube in its side and finger holes. To ocarina family belongs also the traditional Romanian instrument called nai.



Very Romanian today :)

The ocarina has such a beautiful, haunting sound. Jilda has several cd's that she uses in her yoga classes. Many utilize the ocarina.
We also have a Native American friend that does music with flutes that he hand carves. He uses hot coals to burn the chamber inside the flute.
He gave me one as a gift.


I believe they also call that a pan flute. Not positive though. Beautiful sounding.


I am a folkdancer (dancing the cultural dances from countries around the world) although can't do it right now cause of my knee. But I love music from Romania. thanks for sharing, Claudia.

Motto

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
