ong information

This song was composed by Paul De Senneville who had already written several pop songs in the 1980s for the band Pop Concerto Orchestra.

In this instrumental duet, "the cello and the ocarina compete in expressiveness on a swinging rhythmic". The ocarina "gives to the song a thin and air tone which makes us travel in the Andean heights", while the cello "adds to the music a melancholic touch and the depth of the notes of [the] archer".

In France, the single debuted at #37 on October 5, 1991, on the singles chart, and climbed until reaching the top ten five weeks later. It hit the chart for two not consecutive weeks and remained for 21 weeks in the top ten and 32 weeks in the top 50."Song of Ocarina", French Singles Chart [http://lescharts.com/showitem.asp?key=2373&cat=s Lescharts.com] (Retrieved July 17, 2008)] It was certified Gold disc by the SNEPFrench certifications [http://www.infodisc.fr/S_Certif.php Infodisc.com] See: "Les Ventes" => "Toutes les Certifications depuis 1973" => "AUDIN J-Philippe & MODENA Diego" (Retrieved July 17, 2008)] and remains to date the 883th best-selling single of all time in France.
