ocarina in Argentina

Something that recently occurred to me. One of the main destinations for Italian emigrants in the late 19th century was Argentina - there are still more Italian genes in the Argentine population than any others. Since the ocarina was available at the time, it should have gone with the emigrants.

Not much sign of it now. Tango music in particular is not ocarina-friendly - its range is too wide. Was there ever an Argentinian musical genre in which the ocarina played a part?

Looks like he's playing a pendant, and very beautifully too. :)

I'd guess it's some kind of Peruvian.

He's coming from a different tradition than I was thinking of - the Andean easy-listening genre that started up in the 1970s. I was hoping there might be something that evolved from the older Italian tradition.

While Diego Modena does play the ocarina sometimes, the instrument he is using for this particular track is the pan flute, which he also plays very well.
