GUEST,Phil d'Conch The Advent and Development of Chanties (888* d) RE: The Advent and Development of Chanties 18 Jan 21

My turn:

The celeusma has been defined for the last 2400 years as - the rhythmic sounds that sailors make when going about tasks in unison. Clearly, it's not my doing.

How could African-Americans differentiate (proto)chanties so greatly they would not meet the musical definition of a celeusma throughout their evolution?

Whatever else they may be, how are they not celeusma?
