World Sea Shanties

Sea Shanties are songs involved in sail and sailors life. Originally they were used to keep the rhythm for work as a team on the boat. These songs were used to achive a goal, rather then for pure entertainment.
The lyrics and melody were not sophisticated at all. The songs are always meaningful and told of a sailor’s life, abuse from captain and crew, alcohol, and longing for women and sunny-dry land.
Shanty festivals are organize all over the world with fantastic atmosphere. I remember once, I fire a cigarette from a little candle and I will never do it again because some people believe that this action can kill a sailor.
