Orinoco Flow, but it's a Bardcore Sea Shanty



Enya's "Orinoco Flow" is a lovely song no matter who covers it. This Bardcore version uses medieval instrumentation, but the only clue linking it to a sea shanty is the whistle and the lyrics. Still, it's a delightful listen. Hildegard von Blingin' has a lot more of these Bardcore versions you can enjoy here.
