Until ten years ago, I had no idea what an ocarina was. In fact, it was some time after the Zelda game was released that I found out that it was an actual instrument, not something created solely for a video game. Well the instruments are real, and there is a real shop in St. Louis that is making a killing off of selling them.
The St. Louis Ocarina store has decided to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the popular game, which has no doubt contributed greatly to their sales. Yes, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time has been out for a decade now. Anyway, the store is celebrating with a variety of Zelda-themed products, including Ocarinas ranging from $20-$300 in price, and music sheets for songs learned in the game.
You can visit their site and make a purchase from there, however, those that live in St. Louis get a real treat. They can actually take lessons from a trained Ocarina player. Granted, no matter how many times you play Epona’s song, no horse is going to come running up to you.
