It's always bugged me to not get dynamics on ocarina but I've now found a way.
What I do is let some air leak from the thumb hole - I use the right - and blow more gently. This clip demos the technique in the second half, after some blues. It makes a far more expressive instrument. I hope you find this interesting. Thanks for your time.
