A wonderful collaboration

Apparently sea shanties are a thing on TikTok. A friend on Facebook alerted me to an article which explained the way different people who didn't know one another and had never met in real life had built up an amazingly rich sound from the original solo. Here's a compilation of the final results. I just love the modest baritone who says, "filler baritone which nobody will hear but adds gentle thiccness." (sic)



There's something about that bass harmony that makes the hairs prickle on the back of my neck and all the versions, which increase in complexity, are amazing.

Here's the link to the article which explains how it arose and then a YouTuber made the compilation I've linked above.
