tnf :: sea shanties
The release of the film Moana two years ago had every kid singing the navigation songs created for Disney by various modern composers, but the history of sea shanties and songs goes as deep and wide as the Seven Seas themselves. From the islands of the Caribbean to the coasts of Germany and Poland, sea shanties have established themselves as a way for sea-farers to build rhythm into hard labor and stave off the harsher aspects of life on the water. This week's tnf will travel through time and space to explore the world's wide range of shanty traditions. Hosted by dj k-fin.
