A Broccoli Ocarina



A little while ago Steve over at Yellow Doggerel Democrat posted a video of the Vegetable Orchestra. You Tube has a wonderful collection of musical vegetables. With Steve in mind I proudly present a well loved carol on an ocarina made out of broccoli. Enjoy!

A vegetable ... err ... veritable feast for eyes and ears, Jams. :)

Well that is really clever it reminds me of the bamboo pipes I used to make!

I am just wondering what ever gave him the idea in the first place ;-)

Ha Sean, glad you liked it!

It's pretty inventive isn't it Cherie? There is a whole orchestra of musical veg. I wouldn't have thought of using broc or even a mushroom!

ROTFL... thanks, jams! Considering my main performing instrument, the one I taught in the Music Department of U. of St. Thomas (Houston), was recorder, I am very fond of anything that has a fipple.

I'd hate to have to play the broccoli ocarina when it was a few days past its prime...

LOL I can imagine it has a snort shelflife... no chance of selling that Stradivarius ocarina!
