Thought I'd share this with you all on singing sea shanties. The CBC article mentions how physically keeping time with others" helps us connect especially during the pandemic (in other words, singing in groups).

"It seems really reasonable that seeing [people] collaborating digitally in this way … and even just witnessing this kind of a collaboration and maybe singing along at home, would give you that feeling of behavioural synchrony that feels so good to us," Cowart said.

Full article and videos of sea shanties can be found with this link.
