Subject: New Chanties Documentary (2023)
Hello: Posting to announce the release of a documentary video that I produced—

_Songs of the Windlass: Singing Chanties on Gazela_ (33 minutes) narrates the interdependent development of sailors’ chanty genre and shipboard technology. At its center is the historic vessel Gazela of Philadelphia and an experiment of singing chanties while raising anchor with Gazela’s antique windlass.

The movie is free to access, as well as to distribute/share/use with appropriate credit given.

Here are several ways to access the movie (choice of versions, choice of platforms).

Standard version:


Subtitled version:
