Chorus of Calamari County, also known as Calamari Shanty in the European version of Splatoon, is a folk song preformed by the Squid Sisters in the first annual Youth Folk-Singing contest. This song rose them to fame because it caught the eye of committee member Shy-Ho-Shy and helped them arrive in Inkopolis. The Squid Sisters did not compose this song; in actuality, it is an ancient melody. It is danced during Gachi Bon Matsuri.

Description

Chorus of Calamari County starts with a taiko drum playing a slow and steady beat. Next, a Koto, a Japanese guitar, joins in and plays the melody heard in the Calamari Inkantation cover. After that, a shakuhachi, a Japanese flute, gets mixed in and plays the melody of Chorus of Calamari County, which bears resemblance to the future cover. Later, the chorus starts singing the melody the koto plays. Traditional Japanese folk song sound effects are played during the song.
