She Shants

Sassy, silly, subversive, skilful, snazzy, savvy, slick and sharp – a clear insight into the songs of the She Shants. Finding a dearth of sea shanties in the archives with a focus on women, we decided to write our own and adapt what others wrote to better suit. You may see and hear any or all of an eclectic array of instruments in a song – guitar, ukulele, kpanlogo drum, autoharp, shruti box, spoons, shaker, kazoo, recorder and low and high D whistles, the instrumental magic complementing the melodic harmonies which the She Shants bring to their songs.
