The Odyssey

Question: At the beginning of the movie, when the men are boarding the ship, a line of sailors are marching single file, nodding their heads up and down and chanting "Ahh-ah, ah-ooh" repeatedly. What are they doing this for?

Chosen answer: It's a marching chant, sort of like an ancient version of the marching music we have now.
