A sea shanty is a genre of traditional folk song that was once commonly sung as a work song to accompany rhythmical labor aboard large merchant sailing vessels. Deivito plays an ocean’s bounty of original Spanglish Sea Shanties including pirate ballads, dirges, sea shanties, and ancient marinated guarachas. A bilingual gumbo derived from traditional folkloric sounds of the North-Central-Carribean-South Americas, the sonic fare exemplifies a vibrant dance of the Old World and New.
