La Nef – Sea Shanties

BC Legislature lawn 501 Belleville St., Victoria

The worldwide popularity of Sea Shanties shows no sign of slowing down! A phenomenon on Tik Tok and other social media sites, Sea shanties are work songs that were created by 19th century sailors aboard merchant ships, usually sung in accompaniment of hard labour such as hoisting the sails or raising the anchor.  Flash forward to 2012, when La Nef worked with the video game company Ubisoft to create the wildly popular soundtracks to the video games Assassin’s Creed III, Black Flag and Rogue. Since that time, La Nef has been touring and recording these songs of travel, adventure, and missing loved ones who are far away.
